The Associated Press

BANGOR, Kitsap County — A man who worked for a Navy subcontractor has died in a boating accident at Naval Base Kitsap at Bangor.

The Kitsap Sun reports that 50-year-old William Smith worked in the security department for Homeland Security Solutions, a subcontractor for a base support company. He died Thursday night.

The Virginia company’s program manager for Navy projects, Mike McGuire, says he can’t provide accident details until investigations by his company and the Navy are finished.

The Kitsap County coroner’s office says Smith died from saltwater drowning.

McGuire says Smith lived in the Bangor area.
