Sun City West man’s daughter dies in Iraq
PHOENIX — The daughter of a Sun City West man died in an accident in Iraq.
Army Staff Sgt. Linda Carol Jimenez, 39, died Nov. 8 but her name just appeared on a casualty list last week, said her father, Angelo Cruz, 70.
Jimenez of Brooklyn, N.Y., fell while running to keep up with friends, fearing for her safety if she lost contact with them, Cruz said. The accident happened weeks after she was supposed to be transferred back to the United States.
“I’m never going to get over this,” Cruz said Monday. “I feel that fear killed my daughter.”
She died of complications after a blood clot formed, went to her brain and caused a stroke, Cruz said.
Jimenez was assigned to the 2nd Squadron Combat Support Aviation (Maintenance), 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment, in Fort Polk, La.
