NORFOLK, Va. (Tribune News Service) — The sailor who died this week aboard the guided-missile cruiser USS Vella Gulf while it was in the Mediterranean Sea was Petty Officer 2nd Class Imran Khan, the Navy said Friday.

Khan was a boatswain’s mate aboard the ship. He was medically evacuated by helicopter to Greece, where he was pronounced dead Tuesday at a local hospital upon arrival. Navy Times first reported the death, saying the sailor died Tuesday evening after he fell down a ladderwell and fractured his skull on board the guided-missile cruiser. https://www.stripes.com/news/europe/navy-identifies-sailor-who-died-aboard-uss-vella-gulf-1.622372
