Marine Recruit 21 Dies Suddenly during Fitness Test FOURTH DEATH at Base 2 Years

A 21-year-old Marine recruit died suddenly during a physical fitness test in South Carolina, prompting a Marine Corps investigation.

Private First Class Noah Evans of Decatur, Georgia, died while taking a physical fitness test aboard Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island last Thursday.

The cause of death is still unknown and its under investigation.

According to Fox News, Evans was a recruit assigned to Mike Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, and Recruit Training Regiment.

Evans is the fourth Marine recruit to die suddenly at Parris Island base in the past two years.

As Marine Corps Times reported:

In June 2021, Pfc. Dalton Beals, 19, died during the grueling culmination of recruit training known as the Crucible. His senior drill instructor, Staff Sgt. Steven T. Smiley, was later charged with negligent homicide amid accusations that he pushed his recruits too hard despite dangerous heat levels.

In September 2021, Pfc. Anthony Munoz, 21, died on the first day of recruit training.

Pfc. Brandon Barnish, 26, died the same month, the Island Packet reported.

According to the Recruit Training Regiment’s web page, approximately 20,000 recruits come to Parris Island, South Carolina, each year.

“Our deepest condolences go out to Noah’s family and to the Marines and staff of Mike Company,” the depot wrote on Facebook.

Last October, The Daily Fetched reported that a Marine recruit collapsed during a training exercise at Camp Pendleton in Southern California.

AP reported that Private First Class Javier Pong, 18, “became unconscious and unresponsive while conducting scheduled training” at the installation outside San Diego.
