It is always a sad time when the maritime industry loses one of their own, especially someone so young. Midshipman Marisa Sanchez, a freshman at the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, passed away Tuesday night after collapsing during softball practice. Though she was stablized and transported to a nearby hospital, she did not survive the night.
Please keep Marisa, her family, and all the midshipmen at the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy in your thoughts and prayers at this time.
