Coast Guard calls off search for missing helicopter crewmember
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) The Coast Guard says rescuers have called off the search for a sailor who has been missing since a Navy helicopter with five crew members aboard crashed in the ocean off the Virginia coast.
Two others died in yesterday's crash, which happened during a routine training mission. They were among four crew members hoisted from the 42-degree waters by a Navy helicopter and taken to a hospital.
The two surviving sailors are being treated at a Norfolk hospital.
