EL CENTRO, Calif. (AP) — The Navy has released the name of a decorated Navy SEAL who died from a parachute jump accident in the Southern California desert.

Authorities say he was 31-year-old Bradley S. Cavner of Coronado, California.

Cavner was injured during a training jump on Monday in El Centro. The city about 100 miles east of San Diego near the Mexico border is home to Naval Air Facility El Centro.

The cause of the accident is under investigation.

Cavner enlisted in 2003 and served in both Afghanistan and Iraq. He held a Bronze Star Medal with Combat "V," which is awarded for acts of valor in combat.

However, the Navy didn't provide details of his service.

Cavner is survived by his parents, a sister and two brothers.
