A 30-year-old sailor and former high school strength-and-conditioning coach died Tuesday, more than a week after he became unresponsive while training to save fellow service members.
Airman Nathan Burke of Lubbock, Texas, died at Baptist Hospital in Pensacola, Florida, Navy officials announced. He’d been attending Aviation Rescue Swimmer School and was training in a pool April 5 when he became unresponsive.
Paramedics responded and “achieved a spontaneous return of circulation and pulse,” officials with Naval Education and Training Command said. Burke was then transported to the hospital, where he was put on life support.Read military.com
