A second Transportation Security Administration employee died from coronavirus the same day the agency announced its first worker had died.
Alberto Camacho, a branch manager for the TSA’s Acquisition Program Management in Arlington, Virginia, died April 3, according to a TSA press release.
A 20-year veteran of the transportation security industry, Camacho first joined the TSA in 2005 and held multiple positions in security operations, enterprise support and the Federal Air Marshal Service.
“Every day, he worked closely with TSA’s partners to ensure the nation’s aviation security technology remained cutting edge and ahead of the threat,” a statement from the TSA read. “We offer our heartfelt condolences to Alberto’s family, friends and his TSA colleagues.”
On April 3, the agency announced the passing of its first employee due to coronavirus: Francis “Frank” Boccabella III, who worked as a explosive detection canine handler at Newark Liberty International Airport died April 2, the agency said.
