With his daughter near death in a London hospital, Harewood was approached by "John Harrison" with the promise that he could save his daughter. Harrison transfused a small amount of his genetically enhanced blood into Lucille, which healed her.
In exchange, Harrison, in reality Khan Noonien Singh, coerced Harewood to ignite a bomb in the sub-basement of the Kelvin Memorial Archive, which leveled the building, killing forty-two people, including himself, in the process. This act instigated a top-level meeting of Starfleet personnel at Starfleet Headquarters, allowing Khan the opportunity to attempt to kill Admiral Alexander Marcus in revenge for the presumed death of his crew.
