Two people have been confirmed dead after a fatal Navy helicopter crash off the coast of Virginia Beach on Wednesday.
At the time, two Sea Dragon helicopters were together performing routine airborne mine countermeasure training operations when one of them went down.
The crew on the other helicopter contacted the Coast Guard and put a life raft in the water for the four crewmembers who were able to get to the surface after the crash.
Also, the USS Mesa Verde (LPD-19), a Navy amphibious transport dock ship, was in the area training as well. They were also able to provide immediate support following the tragic crash.
