Secret Service dog falls to its death from roof of New Orleans parking deck

A Secret Service dog fell to its death Saturday night while doing a sweep of a multi-story parking deck near a hotel where Vice President Joe Biden was speaking.

The Belgian Malanois fell from the roof of the six-story deck adjacent to The Ritz-Carlton in New Orleans where Biden was speaking at a fundraiser for U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu, reported CNN affiliate WWLTV.

Secret Service spokesman Max Milien told CNN the death was a "tragic accident."
