Officer and Commander Molly Waters was tragically killed in a motorcycle accident in Washington DC.


According to The Washington Post, the crash occurred about 5:20 a.m. Friday morning at South Capitol Street and Firth Sterling Avenue Southeast, when Waters' motorcycle was struck by a car.

Waters died of her injuries in the hospital later on.

Commander Waters then donated her organs and tissues posthumously.

The Coast Guard, on its Facebook page, called her "an inspiration to so many and friend to anyone she met."






Following her removal from life support, doctors and nurses from George Washington University Hospital held an honor walk for the fallen commander.

"She ended up passing life on to other people in need," her father said. "It helped give us a sense of closure."






"To see all of these people, it's like good Lord, our little kid. How far she went in life in her short 38 years," said Marian West, Molly's mother.

"In the passing, she wanted to donate all of her organs and tissues and anything she could. It's typical Molly fashion."

Waters served in the Coast Guard for 16 years, and leaves behind her cat, two sisters, mom and dad, and step-father.

RIP Molly.
