The search for twelve Marines who were involved in a helicopter crash just off the Hawaiian island of Oahu continues.
Reports say two CH-53 helicopters appear to have gone missing during a training flight on Thursday evening. Coast Guard spokesman Lt. Scott Carr said, “No mayday call was received, just word that something had gone wrong.”
Witnesses say they remember seeing a fireball in the distance, while investigators spotted a debris field about two miles north of Haleiwa Beach. Six people were on board each aircraft.
Investigators are faced with a difficult search, as waves up to 30 feet continue to spread out debris and evidence. Among the missing are four officers and eight enlisted Marines.
