(CNN)Three sailors from the USS George Washington aircraft carrier were found dead in less than one week, the Navy said, as the Naval Criminal Investigative Service and local authorities investigate the deaths.

美国海军说,在不到一周的时间里,乔治华盛顿号航空母舰上的三名水兵被发现死亡。海军刑事调查局(Naval Criminal Investigative Service)和地方当局正在调查这起死亡事件。

One sailor was found unresponsive on board the carrier last Friday, while two other sailors were found at off base locations on April 9 and 10.


"While these incidents remain under investigation, there is no initial indication to suggest there is a correlation between these tragic events," said Cmdr. Reann Mommsen, a Navy spokeswoman.

“虽然这些事件仍在调查中,但没有初步迹象表明这些悲惨事件之间存在关联,”海军发言人里安·莫姆森中校(Cmdr. Reann Mommsen)说。

The Navy did not provide a cause of death for any of the three, but the ship did bring on board a Special Psychiatric Rapid Intervention Team. These teams are intended to provide short-term mental health support after a traumatic event, such as a loss of life.


The Navy identified the sailor found deceased on April 9 as Retail Services Specialist 3rd Class Mikail Sharp. The Navy identified the sailor found deceased on April 10 as Interior Communications Electrician 3rd Class Natasha Huffman.

美国海军确认,4月9日被发现死亡的水兵是三级零售服务专员米凯尔·夏普(Mikail Sharp)。

The Navy did not identify the third sailor who was found unresponsive on board the ship on Friday and died.


"Our thoughts and condolences are with the family, friends, and shipmates of our Sailors," Mommsen said.

“我们的思念和哀悼与我们的家人、朋友和船员在一起,” 莫姆森(Mommsen)说。
