ANNAPOLIS, Md. — A Navy midshipman died Saturday while taking a physical readiness test at the U.S. Naval Academy.
The academy identified the midshipman Sunday as Duke Carrillo, 21, of Flower Mound, Texas. Officials said in a news release that Carrillo collapsed during the 1.5-mile run portion of the Navy’s semi-annual physical readiness test.
Officials said initial responders provided exhaustive resuscitation efforts, then Carrillo was rushed to Anne Arundel Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 12:23 p.m. Saturday.
The academy said the circumstances surrounding the cause of his death are under review.
Vice Adm. Sean Buck, 63rd Superintendent of the Naval Academy, called Carrillo’s death a “sudden and tragic loss.”
