SAN ANTONIO (AP) - An airman from northeast Ohio has died during basic training at San Antonio's Lackland Air Force Base.
Base officials say 19-year-old Paige Villers died last week from a respiratory illness. They say she got sick in May, experienced a short period of recovery, but then relapsed.
Villers was from Norton, 7 miles west of Akron.
The base says respiratory viruses are not uncommon when people live close together, such as in a training environment.
