Sailor dies after fall:
Military officials say a Navy sailor died after a fall aboard an aircraft carrier at Naval Station North Island in Coronado, California.
The San Diego Union-Tribune reported that the 21-year-old man fell from an aircraft elevator on the USS Nimitz late Friday. He died at a hospital early Saturday.
The Navy Twitter feed said the accident is under investigation. The sailor's name was not released.
Nimitz spokesman Ensign Bill Petkovski told the Navy Times the crew was making a port visit in San Diego following “routine operations” when the accident occurred.
The Nimitz left its Bremerton, Washington, homeport Sept. 16 for pre-deployment training.
