A 26-year-old Air Force reservist assigned to the 315th Maintenance Group at Joint Base Charleston died Saturday after collapsing during his Air Force Physical Fitness Test, according to a spokesman for Joint Base Charleston.

Staff Sgt. Richard Spofford died at Trident Medical Center, according to Maj. Wayne Capps.

"The men and women of Joint Base Charleston are deeply saddened by the loss of Sergeant Spofford," Col. Scott Sauter, commander of the 315th Airlift Wing, said. "Richard was an integral part of the 315th family. Our thoughts and prayers are with Richard's family, friends and co-workers during this difficult time."

Spofford was a resident of North Charleston and has been a member of the 315th Airlift Wing since January, 2013, Capps said.
