The Navy on Thursday released its investigation into the death of a SEAL candidate who died after completing “Hell Week” training in California, concluding the program operated with a number of risks.
The investigation into Seaman Kyle Mullen’s death found that Basic Underwater Demolition/Sea, Air, and Land (BUD/S) was “operating with a previously unrecognized accumulation of risk across multiple systems,” the Navy said.
Seaman Kyle Mullen died in February 2022 at a San Diego area hospital after he and another SEAL trainee reported experiencing symptoms of an unknown illness.
