Bio: Mike was born in Gloversville, New York, to Joseph and Billy Ambrosino, and he had five siblings. Mike was a loving husband and father, and an accomplished law enforcement officer with more than 32 years in service.

Mikeís first 25 years in law enforcement were spent with the New York State Department of Corrections, Philmont Police Department, and Coxsackie Police Department. Over the course of his career, he gained a reputation for integrity and received more awards for meritorious service than one could hope to count.

After retiring from New York State, Mike and his family moved south with their sights set on more free time for boating and adventures, both of which Michael loved very much. But, no sooner than Michael had found his sea legs, he dove back into law enforcement with Horry County Police Department (HCPD) and swam right onto the Beach Patrol team.

Over the more than seven years Mike spent with HCPD, he served on South Precinct Patrol, Beach Patrol, Honor Guard, and as a Team Leader for the SWAT Negotiations Team. Like the photos of the sunrise on the beach that he would take before each shift, Mike saw every day as a new opportunity for something great and beautiful.

When Mike came to work, he put his all into helping others - fellow officers and community members alike - and doing it with a smile and wry humor. Whether it was responding to calls for service on shift, or volunteering after-hours to run traffic control for a local church, Mike gained the respect and friendship of all who knew him. He epitomized the HCPD core values of honor, commitment, pride, and dedication.

Outside of work, Mike was always on the move, always active, always doing something fun, especially in the great outdoors. He often competed in mud runs and went on scuba diving excursions with his younger son, Tanner, and he relished hunting trips and monster jams with his older son, Ryan. At the end of every day, Mike could be found sitting back and catching up with his wife, Tracey, enjoying time together at home with good food, better drinks, and only the best company.

No matter what, everyone knew they could always count on Mike for a prank or a story, and often both at the same time. But, those who were close to him also knew that they could count on him for so much more - the thing that needed fixing, the work that needed doing, the friend that needed help. He was always there and willing to lend a hand, whether it was doing a Jeep upgrade or talking through a tough situation. Thatís how heíll be remembered, always reaching out and willing to help others in (need).

Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: SC   USA   Sun. Jul. 19, 2020
Summary: Corporal Michael Ambrosino died after contracting COVID-19 as the result of an exposure while on duty. ====================================================================

COVID-19, a flu-like virus, originated in Wuhan, China. Worth a mention, the Chinese Government had a biological research facility in that very province. At this point, it was widely held that COVID-19 was a bat-coronavirus and the first case was discovered in Wuhan in Oct. 2019.

On Dec. 31, 2019, Chinese authorities alerted the World Health Organization of pneumonia cases in Wuhan City, Hubei province, China, with an unknown cause. Jan 7, 2020 Chinese authorities identify a new type of coronavirus (called novel coronavirus or nCoV).

Despite deaths and an entire Chinese Province(Hubei) quarantined by the Chinese Government, the World Health Organization(WHO) simply declares a global public-health emergency. Despite this serious understatement, on January 31st, President Trump bans foreign nationals from entering the US if they were in China within the prior two weeks. Despite a large public outcry of racism, this move likely saved 1000's of American lives, it would later be deemed.

After a full blown global infection, and an entire country being declared on 'Lockdown'(Italy), on March 11th, WHO declared the outbreak a pandemic. This same day, President Trump bans all travel from 26 European countries. On Mar. 13th, a US national emergency is declared over the novel coronavirus outbreak.

On Mar. 23rd, New York City confirms 21,000 cases, making it the biggest epicenter of the outbreak in the US. On Mar. 31, more than 1/3 of humanity is under some form of lockdown. On Apr. 2nd, the world passes one million COVID-19 infections.

On April 7th, roughly 95% of all Americans are under lockdown, as 42 states issue stay-at-home orders. The entire American economy has ground to a halt. Congress passed laws awarding trillions in grants, loans and other types of assistance to the American working population and businesses.
