Black Hawk crash kills 11

Black Hawk crash kills 11

Officials from the United States military have begun investigating what caused a Black Hawk helicopter carrying 13 soldiers to crash on a training mission in upstate New York.

Eleven of those on board were killed in the crash, which occurred in a heavily wooded area near Fort Drum, home to the Army's 10th Mountain Division.

At present there is no word on the condition of the two survivors, who were taken to Samaritan Medical Center in nearby Watertown according to Major Daniel Bohr of Fort Drum.

The army has not yet disclosed the identity of the soldiers killed, although Lieutenant Colonel Bryan Hilferty said that of those on board four were from the 10th Mountain Division's Aviation Brigade and the other nine were with the Second Brigade.
