2 FBI Agents Killed In Training Accident

Atlanta 5/21/2013 3:25:56 AM

The FBI confirmed the deaths of two special agents in a statement released on Sunday. Officials said Christopher Lorek, 41, and Stephen Shaw, 40, died in an accident Friday off the coast of Virginia Beach, Virginia. The men, both part of the Hostage Rescue Team, were participating in a training exercise at the time of the accident.

Authorities offered no other details about the accident, but insiders have revealed that the men died aboard a Navy Military Sealift Command Ship. The FBI says the accident is being reviewed.

"We mourn the loss of two brave and courageous men," FBI Director Robert S. Mueller said Sunday. "Like all who serve on the Hostage Rescue Team, they accept the highest risk each and every day, when training and on operational missions, to keep our nation safe. Our hearts are with their wives, children, and other loved ones who feel their loss most deeply. And they will always be part of the FBI Family."

Lorek had been with the FBI for 17 years while Shaw had been with the bureau for 8. Lorek leaves behind a wife, an 11-year-old daughter and an 8-year-old daughter. Shaw is survived by a wife, a 3-year-old daughter and a 1-year-old son.
