Sailor's death during Navy SEAL training ruled a homicide
The drowning death of a sailor during a Navy SEAL training exercise in May has been ruled a homicide.
An autopsy report by the San Diego County medical examiner's office faulted Navy instructors and others for taking "excessive" actions that "directly contributed to the death" of Seaman James Derek Lovelace, 21.

It happened two months ago during a swim drill in which Lovelace, who was not considered a strong swimmer, and other students were required to tread water in fatigues and boots with their face masks full of water.
