Ailes will celebrate his ninth anniversary with his wife in the next few weeks. According to News 1130 radio in Vancouver, the couple are ages 8 and 6.

“Efforts were made by first responders to revive the man, but tragically, he died on the spot,” said Vancouver Police Department constable Tania Vicintin. “This is an absolutely heartbreaking scenario. Our deepest condolences are with the family and friends of this person.”

Pender said that everything Ailes did was for his children.

“He’s made some comments about how much he’s already missing his father. His son told me yesterday, ‘I only got to know my dad for eight years, that’s not long enough.’ It’s impossible to say anything about him other than just reminding him how awesome his father was. My sister is struggling, of course,” Pender said, news 1130.
