A Navy SEAL died during night dive training in Bremerton, Wash., a Navy spokesman confirmed.
Chief Special Warfare Operator (SEAL) Eric F. Schellenberger, 36, died Thursday. He was assigned to SEAL Delivery Vehicle Team 1 based out of Pearl City, Hawaii.
Schellenberger “encountered difficulty in the water and did an emergency ascent,” said Lt. Cmdr. John Daniels. After coming to the surface, Schellenberger was unresponsive, Daniels said. He was treated for an hour in a recompression chamber, but did not survive.
The incident is under investigation.
The chief was dive-qualified, and no other divers were injured in the incident, Daniels said.
I'm totally with you Grandpa273....I've posted a couple of itmes in my blogs about Medal of Honor awardees that have passed on...if anyone deserves a moment of silence, those folks do as do any active military personnel that give the ultimate sacrifice for their flag and country.
