NJ SEAL Candidate Dies During Hell Week Training


A Manalapan, New Jersey man is being remembered after he died trying to become a Navy SEAL.

His former high school football coach says players will now wear Kyle Mullen's number on their uniforms. The 24-year-old was going through Hell Week training in San Diego on Friday and didn't survive an underwater demolition class. A second candidate was injured and remains hospitalized in stable condition. The training program runs 26 weeks.

The last SEAL candidate to die was James Derek Lovelace in 2016, when a SEAL instructor repeatedly held his dead underwater during a first week pool drill. His death was ruled a homicide, but the instructor did not see any punishment.
