Child dies at McConnell Air Force Base in Kansas, officials say

A child has died at McConnell Air Force Base in Wichita, Kansas, the Air Force announced Wednesday. 

The base said in a statement that the death happened last Thursday, Sept. 21, and that “attempts to revive the child by first responders were unsuccessful.” 

“The cause of death is under investigation by the Air Force Office of Special Investigations,” the statement added. “The investigation remains open and ongoing pending medical examiner results.” 

The age of the child has not been released. The base has single family homes on-site. 


“Q was well known for his mentorship and growing the next generation,” U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. Benjamin Wingler, 27th SOCS commander, said in a statement at the time. “He expressed this in so many ways from the Cannon Air Force Base men’s basketball coach to the junior enlisted and officers he molded in the 27 Special Operations Communications Squadron. He left a lasting impression on Cannon and in the Air Force.”
