19-year-old reservist dies after collapsing during training march

A 19-year old reservist from the Lorne Scots Regiment based in Oakville, Ont. died last week after collapsing during a training exercise.

According to a posting on the regiment's Facebook page, Pte. Connor James Beck had almost completed a rucksack march when he collapsed.

"He was rushed to Brampton Civic Hospital with members in his chain of command and his parents arrived shortly after," said the posting by the regiment's commanding officer, Lt.-Col. R. Fraser.

"Despite the incredible effort of the hospital staff administering lifesaving measures for nearly an hour, Private Beck passed away on 12 May 2022."

The Department of National Defence has yet to release an official statement on the incident or indicate whether an investigation into Beck's death is underway.
