Following "Hell Week" training, a Navy SEAL candidate dies and is hospitalized a second time.

After completing the initial, arduous phase of the training for one of America's most elite military organizations, known as Hell Week, one Navy SEAL candidate passed away on Friday, and another was taken to a hospital in San Diego.


The Navy stated that the procedure of notifying the trainee's family is still in progress, so NBC News is refusing to release the trainee's name. Naval Special Warfare Command stated that an investigation is being conducted into the deceased.


The two SEAL applicants were admitted to the hospital on Friday, according to the statement, "many hours after their Basic Underwater Demolition SEAL (BUD/S) class successfully completed Hell Week, part of the first phase of the Navy SEAL assessment and selection process." On February 4, a candidate passed away at Sharp Coronado Hospital in Coronado, California. At the Naval Medical Center in San Diego, the other candidate is in stable condition.


When they reported symptoms and were sent to get medical care, the sailors were not actively training, according to the statement.


SEALS candidates go through a series of demanding training drills during Hell Week and are given very little time to rest.

According to the Navy, only approximately one in five recruits complete the rigorous program, which creates 200 to 250 SEALs a year.


According to published accounts, up to 17 SEALs who successfully completed the school have perished in training incidents over the last 20 years, highlighting how perilous the job is even when combat deployments aren't involved.
