Navy IDs Sailor Who Died in Fall at Va. Barracks

NORFOLK, Va. — The Navy has identified a 21-year-old sailor who fell to his death from a sixth-floor balcony of a barracks at Naval Station Norfolk.

Morgan Louis Hayman of Pawtucket, Rhode Island, was killed Tuesday after the Navy said he got into an altercation at Wall Manor, a barracks for transient personnel.

The other sailor was treated for injuries at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital and released. He was not identified.

Both sailors were assigned to the Norfolk-based aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman.

Hayman was an aviation ordnance airman.

The Navy says the incident is under investigation.
