Fort Riley Soldier dies After Running
FORT RILEY, Kansas, 02 August 2016 — The Fort Riley community is mourning the
death of one its soldiers.

Officials say Pfc. Luis Ortiz passed away Saturday at Salina Regional Health Center.
The 24-year-old lost consciousness while running July 27 in Junction City and had
been hospitalized since then.

“It’s never easy to lose a member of your family,” said Lt. Col. Jennifer Reynolds,
commander of the 3rd AHB, 1st Avn. Regt. “Our Soldiers are our family, and we
extend our deepest sympathies and support to the family and friends of Pfc. Ortiz.”

Ortiz was a Black Hawk helicopter repairer with Company D, 3rd Assault Helicopter
Battalion, 1st Aviation Regiment, 1st Combat Aviation Brigade, 1st Inf. Div.

He joined the Army in June of last year and arrived at Fort Riley in January.

Last week a Fort Jackson soldier also collapsed after finishing the final event of a
physical fitness test, a two-mile run, he died of hyperthermia, according to the
Richland County Coroner’s office.

Sgt. 1st Class Clayton Z. Hughes, 35, from Delta Company, 120th Adjutant General
Battalion (Reception), was completing the final lap of the run and as he neared the
finish line he began to struggle with his balance. After crossing the finish line he began
to show signs of being a heat casualty. Cadre on scene initiated emergency
procedures for heat related injuries and contacted EMS.

He was immediately evaluated and transported to Providence Medical Center for
further diagnosis and care.  He was pronounced dead at 7:56 a.m.

Hughes was attending the Senior Leader Course, a leadership course for senior
non-commissioned officers.
