Investigation Underway After 2 Marines Die In Helicopter Crash

The military says two marines were killed in a helicopter crash during a training exercise Friday afternoon. The marines were based out of Miramar, San Diego but were training in Twentynine Palms.

The Third Marine Aircraft Wing chopper was carrying only the two unnamed victims when it crashed late Friday afternoon at the base near Palm Springs, about 140 miles east of Los Angeles. The chopper went down around 4:30 p.m. regional time for the duration of an instruction workout at the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center, WPX News reported.

Both Marines on board died as a result of their injuries.

The names of the two marines have not been released – the Marine Corps is allowing 24 hours to notify relatives.

Wing commander Maj. Gen. Michael Rocco said in a statement released by Marine Corps Air Station Miramar: “Our hearts go out to the families and friends of the two Marines lost in this tragic accident. We at Third Marine Aircraft Wing stand ready to provide support to their families.”

According to its website, the Combat Center’s mission ‘is to conduct relevant live-fire combined arms training, urban operations, and Joint/Coalition level integration training’ for Marines and Navy sailors.

The cause of the crash is under investigation – there is no immediate word on what caused the helicopter crash.

MCAS Miramar also took to Twitter, writing: “California-based U.S. Marine helicopter crashes, two fatalities. Our hearts go out to the families of the Marines.”
