Marine dies after collapsing during training exercise in California

A US Marine died at a hospital in Palm Springs, Calif., after a day of intense training in preparation for deployment overseas, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The Marine Corps said Sunday that the soldier had been training at the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center at Twentynine Palms -- on the edge of the Joshua Tree National Park in southeastern California -- when he collapsed on Saturday night.

The Marine, from the 2nd Marine Logistics Group at Camp Lejeune, N.C., was airlifted to the Desert Regional Medical Center in Palm Springs on Saturday night, where he was pronounced dead, the Times reported.

The Marine, whose unit was preparing for deployment to Afghanistan, has not been publicly identified by officials.
