transquebecniece Posted September 5, 2008 Report Share Posted September 5, 2008 My thoughts and prayers go out to the U.S. Coast Guard today...a very sad day for crewmembers and their large, extended family. HONOLULU - An official says at least three U.S. Coast Guard crewmembers were killed when their helicopter crashed in waters about five miles south of Honolulu, and another crewmember is missing. Spokesman Lt. John Titchen says the search continues Friday for the remaining crewmember. He says the Coast Guard release the names or ranks of the dead crewmembers for another day. The helicopter crashed at 8:15 p.m. Thursday as the crew was conducting search and rescue drills with a 47-foot motor lifeboat. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
