Search teams on Thursday found the wreckage of a crashed Army Black Hawk helicopter and recovered all but two of the bodies of servicemen killed in the Tuesday accident off the coast of Florida.
According to officials, the Louisiana National Guard and the U.S. Marine Corps were operating a nighttime training exercise when the helicopter, carrying four guardsmen and seven Marines, went down. Media reports say the night was heavy with a thick fog.
Nine bodies have been identified so far.
Another helicopter accompanying the crashed Black Hawk during the training drill returned safely.
An investigation into the cause of the crash is currently under way.
