The father of an 18-year-old Navy recruit who died in boot camp confirms that the young seaman recruit was a Mobile native and a Baker High School graduate.

Kelsey Nobles passed away Tuesday after collapsing. Doctors say she went into cardiac arrest.  “She just passed out after her last PT (fitness exam) and couldn’t be revived,” Harold Nobles tells News 5. Noble says the young woman had the biggest heart, “she was just full of energy. She would give anyone anything, her last her dollar. She was the sweetest soul. That’s the best way I can describe her.”

Nobles says the Navy promises a full investigation. This is the second death under similar circumstances at the Navy boot camp in Great Lakes Illinois in the past few months.  Because of that Kelsey Nobles’ father has questions. “For me, I’m just like what’s wrong? These young people are so excited about serving their country and going into the military. Are they doing enough to check them? Does physical testing need to be more in-depth?,” Nobles wondered. But at the same time, he says, “Right now we are just focusing on getting her home and grieving first.”
