Marine recruit dies after strength test
A future Marine recruit has died -- days after completing a physical fitness test at the Marine recruiting station in Frederick, Maryland. 18-year-old Jose Rodriguez was set to attend boot camp next month at Parris Island in South Carolina. Last Wednesday, he completed a strength test that includes pull-ups, crunches and a mile-and-a-half run -- then he suffered a medical emergency.
Rodriguez died two days later.
