SAN DIEGO — Today, Rep. Scott Peters (CA-52) released the following statement regarding Friday’s Navy SEAL training tragedy in Coronado. One candidate was injured and another died.

“My prayers are with the family and loved ones of the deceased during this very difficult time, and I wish for a full recovery of the other candidate reported injured yesterday. These courageous, talented sailors were on their way to becoming some of our country’s most elite military personnel. We must find out what transpired so we can do whatever we can to keep others safe. In the days and weeks ahead, I look forward to learning more as the Navy conducts a thorough investigation.”
