NAVARRE, Fla. (AP) – Military officials say they have found the main site where a helicopter crashed during a training mission off the Florida coast, killing seven Marines and four soldiers.
Col. Monte Cannon said Thursday that officials are not hopeful any survivors will be found. He says the mission has transitioned from search and rescue to recovery.
Cannon says the military is not yet releasing the names of those killed or any details about them.
Heavy fog, rain and rough surf was complicating efforts to recover the remains of those killed. The military has provided few details about the crash, which happened Tuesday night in fog so thick that another helicopter turned back.
