A sailor who died after collapsing at the end of a fitness test in Virginia has been identified.

The Navy says 19-year-old Dalton Andrew Frye of Chester, West Virginia, collapsed near the end of a run on Sept. 24. The Navy says Frye died Saturday after being taken off life support by his family.

Frye joined the Navy in July 2014. He was assigned to the Training Support Center in Hampton Roads. He was scheduled to graduate from a maintenance school next week with orders to join the guided missile destroyer USS Ramage.

The incident remains under investigation.

It marked the second death this month involving a Navy training run in Virginia. Chief Petty Officer Anthony Tuff died after collapsing near Fort Monroe on Sept. 15.
