The U.S. Marine Corps has identified the recruit who died during boot camp this weekend. Adam Aube, from Brunswick, Maine, was 18 years old. Paramedics pronounced him dead Saturday morning on the way to the Naval Hospital in Beaufort.
Aube had just taken part in the initial strength test. The test is designed to find out if a recruit is ready to take part in basic training. To pass, each recruit is required to complete 40 crunches, two pull-ups and a one and a half mile run in 13 minutes.
The Marine Corps is investigating.
