The Navy Midshipmen headed back to the locker rooms at MetLife Stadium on Saturday to celebrate their 17-13 win over the Army Black Knights and with them was the son of a fallen Navy SEAL commander, who tragically died last week in a training accident. 

The Navy Athletics department shared a video of Brian Bourgeois’ youngest son being hoisted in the air as the players cheered on. According to the team, the entire Bourgeois family was in the locker room and his wife spoke to the players.

The circumstances of Bourgeois’ fall are still under investigation. A Navy official said it was not clear if the rope separated from the aircraft. The findings will be made public at a later time, the Navy said.
