- Advertisment -

The US Navy acknowledged the death of three USS George Washington sailors last week, though it’s unclear what happened to the service members.

Naval Air Force Atlantic spokesman Michael Maus told the Navy Times that on Friday one seaman “was found unresponsive on board the ship.”


The unidentified sailor was reportedly treated by a medical team aboard the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, then transferred to a Virginia hospital where he died.

Maus told the Navy Times the “incident is under investigation” and the Naval Criminal Investigative Service is working with USS George Washington brass to figure out what happened.



A dead crew member was also discovered April 9 and another on April 10, though where they were found and the circumstances of their deaths have not been reported.

The USS George Washington is reportedly in its fifth year of a refueling and complex overhaul at Newport News Shipbuilding that’s run past schedule due in part to the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s slated to hit the open water near the end of the year.

According to CNN, there is no early indication that the deaths are related. That network said the two earlier deaths occurred off-base.
