VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) - One of four crew members who was rescued when a military helicopter went down in the Atlantic off Virginia has died, the Navy said Wednesday in a statement.
The Navy said the crewman died hours after he was rescued about 20 miles east of Virginia Beach and taken to a civilian hospital in Norfolk. Three other crew members are being evaluated at the hospital.
The search continues for a fifth crew member in the 42 degree seas.
The identity of the dead crewman has not been released.
