A Navy SEAL from North Dakota died following a kayaking accident off the Virginia coast Wednesday.
Petty Officer 1st Class Devon Grube was recovered by the U.S. Coast Guard after his kayak capsized in the Chesapeake Bay.
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.
He was then taken to a hospital where he died from his injuries.
Grube was a 2000 graduate from Cavalier High School and earned his Bachelor’s in criminal justice at UND before joining the Navy.
