A sailor training to be a Navy SEAL was placed in a coma after a fellow student "unintentionally injured" him.

According to the Navy Times, the injured student is now out of the coma and is improving as he recovers.

The San Diego Union Tribune reported that the incident happened in a classroom during the Basic Under Water Demolition/SEAL training program's (BUD/S) land navigation course on Oct. 12.

Students generally challenge each other with physical incentives during their coursework, and in this case that involved one student slapping his partner when he gave a wrong answer. The recipient of the slap fell and hit his head.

He was rushed to the hospital and doctors put him into a medically induced coma to help his wounds heal.

"A student . . . was hospitalized when he was unintentionally injured by another student during classroom instruction," the training center in Coronado, California said in a statement, the Times reported. "The staff on site immediately rendered medical attention and quickly transported the injured student to the hospital."

SEAL spokesman Lt. Trevor Davids told the Tribune the incident is under investigation.
