NORFOLK, Va. — A Navy SEAL died during parachute training Wednesday morning in Arizona, according to information released by Naval Special Warfare Group 2.

The operator will be identified once his family has been notified. The incident, which occurred near Casa Grande, is under investigation.

Lt. Dave Luckett, Group 2 spokesman, said the SEAL died during normal freefall parachute training.

The SEAL is the fifth to die since early December, and the second SEAL training death in two weeks.
