The Navy has identified a midshipman who collapsed during a PRT run at the US Naval Academy on Saturday.

MIDN 3/C Duke Carrillo, a 21-year-old from Texas, is the subject in question regarding an investigation as to how the midshipman managed to die during a PT test.

“My wife, Joanne, and I join the Brigade, staff and faculty in mourning the sudden and tragic loss of Midshipman Duke Carrillo,” said Vice Adm. Sean Buck, the Naval Academy’s 63rd superintendent.“Our most heartfelt sympathies and condolences go out to the entire Carrillo family, and our extended Naval Academy family, during this extremely difficult time.”

Carrillo was studying Quantitative Economics at the academy, and his twin brother, Dylan, is also part of the class of 2022. His youngest brother, Jake, is part of the Class of 2023.

Attempts to revive the midshipman were described as “exhaustive.”

Despite rushing him to Anne Arundel Medical Center in a timely fashion, he was pronounced dead shortly after noon on Saturday.

According to the Navy Times, the incident is under investigation.
