A Secret Service dog fell to its death from a parking garage in New Orleans Saturday while on guard for an event featuring Vice President Biden, The Hill reports.

Biden was speaking at a fundraiser for Sen. Mary Landrieau when the dog fell.

“It was a tragic accident,” Secret Service spokesman Max Milien told The Hill Sunday.

The age and name of the Belgian Malinois has not been released.

The dog was part of the Secret Service’s K-9 division called Canine Explosives Detection Unit, which sniffs out firearms and bombs, the Hill reported.
