LANSING, Mich. (AP) - U.S. flags will be lowered Friday in Michigan for a second Navy SEAL who died following a training accident in a swimming pool at a base in Virginia.

Special Warfare Operator 1st Class Brett Allen Marihugh of Livonia, Michigan, died April 26.

Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder ordered the lowering of flags on state buildings and within the state Capitol complex in honor of Marihugh. Snyder says his death “is a reminder to all about the great sacrifices our servicemen and women make for us on a daily basis to ensure our safety and freedom.”

The 34-year-old Marihugh and 32-year-old Special Warfare Operator 1st Class Seth Cody Lewis of Queens, New York, were found unresponsive at the bottom of the Combat Swimming Training Facility at Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story.
