    A U.S. Park Police Sergeant who died in the line of duty will be laid to rest Wednesday.

    Sgt. Michael Boehm suffered a fatal heart attack last month while trying to rescue an injured person under the Key Bridge.
     
    Funeral services for the 19-year veteran of the force will take place Wednesday morning at the Church of the Nativity in Burke, Virginia.

    A processional through D.C. will take place following the service and could last around 90 minutes.

    It will travel from the church in Burke around 11:30 a.m. and head for the U.S. Park Police headquarters in downtown Washington.

    The procession will then head back to Virginia for Boehm’s burial at Fairfax Memorial Park.

    Dozens of people gathered to remember Boehm at his wake Tuesday night.

    Sergeant Boehm leaves behind a wife and son.
