Robert Tramaine Williams, 24, of Daytona Beach collapsed about 2 p.m. after completing the test, police said. Officers immediately administered cardiopulmonary resuscitation and paramedics tried to revive Williams, but he was pronounced dead at Halifax Health Medical Center about an hour later.
Balance, flexibility, muscular endurance and strength assessments were part of the process. Four other recruits also took the test.
Williams, a graduate of Lyman High School in Longwood, was a student at Daytona State College’s School of Emergency Services and had applied for a job with Holly Hill Oct. 9. He graduated this year with a bachelor of science in psychology from Bethune-Cookman University in Daytona Beach, where he played football.
