Spokesman Lt. Cmdr. David Benham said the accident didn't affect the ship and no one else was injured.

Lt. Kyle A. Raines said the sailor, whose name hasn't been released, was mortally injured while the sub was submerged and conducting routine operations. He was given emergency treatment and placed on a medical helicopter, but died before reaching a hospital.
