VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) -- The Navy says a second crewmember of five aboard a Navy helicopter that crashed into the ocean off Virginia has died.

The Navy says the crewmember was among four who were plucked from the seas about 20 miles off Virginia. Their helicopter went down during a routine training mission Wednesday morning.

Another of the rescued four died earlier.

Two other crewmembers remain hospitalized in Norfolk, while a search continues for the fifth.

Condolences to the family of the slain person. Military will take care of his family very much unlike the fiasco of Desert Storm Navy veterans that are sick because they were not across an imaginary red line.
