SAN DIEGO (AP) - The Coast Guard says a Navy helicopter with
five people aboard has crashed into the ocean 13 miles south of San
Diego near the Coronado Islands.
Coast Guard Petty Officer Henry Dunphy says the Navy reported
the crash of the HH60 Seahawk helicopter shortly before midnight
Tuesday.
Dunphy says Coast Guard helicopters and boats along with San
Diego Harbor police and U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents
are searching the area for survivors.
There's no word on whether any wreckage or survivors have been
discovered.
Dunphy didn't know from where the helicopter had taken off and
Navy officials didn't immediately respond to phone messages left
