11 presumed dead after helicopter crash.
PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) - Military officials say crews have found human remains, after an Army helicopter crashed over waters off of Florida. Seven Marines and four soldiers are presumed dead.
The crash took place during a night training mission. Heavy fog has been hampering search efforts.
Andy Bourland, a spokesman for Elgin Air Force Base outside Pensacola, says the UH-60 Black Hawk from the Army National Guard was reported missing around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday night, and crews found debris around 2 a.m.
The area was under a fog advisory Wednesday. The crash scene is near a remote swath of beach between Pensacola and Destin. It's owned by the military and used for test missions.
