MADISON, Wis. - An Airman assigned to the 115th Fighter Wing, Wisconsin Air National Guard, died April 5 following a fall from a fifth-story window in Kadena, Japan.

The Airman was pronounced dead at 9:51 p.m. local time after being transported to the U.S. Naval Hospital Okinawa at Camp Foster.

The incident is under investigation.

The Airman's name is being withheld until 24 hours after notification of next of kin. The family was notified this afternoon.

Approximately 250 Airmen and 12 F-16 Fighting Falcons comprising the 176th Expeditionary Fighter Squadron deployed to Kadena in January in support of the Pacific Command Theater Security Package. The deployment is intended to provide the Pacific Command region with forces capable of a variety of operations - including disaster relief, global situational awareness, combating piracy, active defense and power projection.
