Marine recruit dies during training
SAN DIEGO -- A 19-year-old Marine recruit died after complaining of chest pains during a water-survival training exercise, officials said.
Pvt. Samuel J. Bruss of Kenosha, Wis., had just left a pool at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot Thursday when he told a duty corpsman he was having chest pains, the Marines said. He was pronounced dead at a hospital. An autopsy was planned.
Buss was on his 27th day of the 12-week training program.
His death is the second at the depot in less than three weeks. On Nov. 23, 18-year-old Pvt. Neal Edwards IV of St. Clair, Mo., collapsed after negotiating an obstacle course during physical training. Autopsy results were pending.
The two men were part of the same company of about 350 recruits. It was "too early to tell" whether there was any link between the deaths, Lt. Mike Friel said.
