An Army Ranger died last month during free-fall training in Arizona, according to U.S. Army Special Operations Command.

Sgt. Maj. Samuel Morris McAllister, 45, died on Jan. 24 in Eloy, Arizona, a USASOC spokesman told Army Times.

He was posthumously promoted from master sergeant to sergeant major.

In free-fall operations, the jumper isn’t attached to a static line that automatically deploys the parachute. Instead, the jumper free falls before deploying the chute.

No further information about the incident was available since it’s under investigation, USASOC spokesman Lt. Col. Robert Bockholt said.
