Investigators have ruled out drowning in the death of Micah Walker as a possible cause, contradicting the Army’s original statement which was released soon after he passed. Walker was part of a group taking part in a strenuous water treading exercise at the Key West Naval Air Station on Tuesday, July 27th when he lost consciousness. He fell beneath the water’s surface prompting instructors to dive after him, but he was found unresponsive and an attempt to resuscitate him was unsuccessful. He is survived by his parents, a wife, and three children. Staff Sgt. Walker had joined the Army in April 2017 and more recently completed his Special Forces Qualification Course in January of this year.
