North Dakota-Born Navy SEAL Dies In Kayak Accident
A Navy SEAL from North Dakota has died in a kayaking accident off the Virginia coast.
The Virginian-Pilot reports Petty Officer 1st Class Devon Grube was recovered by the U.S. Coast Guard Wednesday and taken to a hospital where he died from his injuries.
The Navy says the Coast Guard was notified of a capsized kayak in Chesapeake Bay not far from Cape Charles Wednesday morning. The Coast Guard responded with a boat and a helicopter and found Grube about two hours later.
Grube graduated from Cavalier High School in 2000 and earned a bachelor's degree in criminal justice from the University of North Dakota before he joined the Navy.
