A crewmember on amphibious transport dock Carter Hall fell into the ship's well deck and died Wednesday from his injuries, the Navy reported.
"Following lifesaving efforts by the ship's emergency medical team, the sailor was evacuated via Navy helicopter to Pitt Memorial Trauma Center in Greenville, N.C. where he was pronounced dead," Expeditionary Strike Group 2 said in a Thursday press release.
The sailor's family has been notified of his death, but officials said they would withhold the sailor's name for 24 hours to respect the privacy of the family.
Carter Hall, a ship in the Bataan Amphibious Ready Group, is underway off the coast of North Carolina for training.
