An Air Force basic trainee died Monday after collapsing during physical fitness training at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, according to the 37th Training Wing.

The woman's name has not been released to the press yet, a wing news release says. Her next of kin has been notified of her death.

After the woman collapsed Monday morning, emergency medical personnel tried to resuscitate her, the news release says. She was taken to San Antonio Medical Center, where a medical team could not revive her.

"This is a tragic event and all of us at the 37th Training Wing are grieving the loss of a fellow airman," Col. Trent Edwards, 37th Training Wing commander said in the news release. "Our thoughts and prayers are with the trainee's family during this very difficult time."

Investigators are looking into the woman's death.
