The U.S. Naval Academy has confirmed that a midshipman died Saturday morning during the semi-annual physical readiness test.
Officials notified the Brigade of Midshipmen, staff and faculty later in the afternoon, according to a prepared statement emailed to Navy Times.
Academy officials promised to provide more details after the 24-hour next of kin notification process expires.
Grief counseling services and other forms of support are available to fellow students and their instructors through their chains of command, the campus chaplains and the Midshipmen Development Center.
