The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to provide details beyond a brief statement issued by Naval Special Warfare Group One, which is the Coronado, California-based SEALs group to which the sailor was assigned.

The Naval Special Warfare Group statement said the sailor died of injuries sustained in the parachute jump and his name would be released after next of kin were notified.
