Dad dies after father-daughter dance at wedding

YORK CO., S.C. (WSPA) – Detective Tim Buchanan passed away suddenly during his daughter’s wedding in Costa Rica on Saturday.

Buchanan suffered a heart attack after the father-daughter dance, and unfortunately, did not survive.

A GoFundMe post from a family friend says:

Jeni and Tim were so excited to head to Costa Rica a few days ago for their daughter’s wedding yesterday (9/3/16). If you know Jeni, you know how much Tim means to her, and how wonderful that love is that they share. During the wedding, after the father-daughter dance, Tim had a heart attack. Sadly, he didn’t survive it. Our hearts are broken for Jeni and their entire family. Through the shock of their terrible loss, Jeni has to now deal with arrangements and expenses that she wasn’t at all prepared for.

The South Carolina Sheriffs’ Association shared a post about Buchanan on their Facebook page.

The GoFundMe Page has raised nearly $10,000.
