WALNUT CREEK — A 21-year-old soldier from Walnut Creek died after falling ill on his first day of USA Army Ranger School in Georgia.

Second Lieutenant Michael Parros died after being treated for hyponatremia, an illness caused by not usually low sodium levels in the blood that can result from drinking too much water, according to Army officials at Fort Benning, where he was in training.

“Typically it’s over-hydration, but we don’t really know what happened in this case,” John Tongret, a Fort Benning spokesman, remarked Thursday.

The Army is investigating, which is standard practice when a soldier dies, Tongret said.
