An army helicopter carrying seven Marines and four soldiers crashed on the foggy coast of Florida during a Tuesday night mission. The Black Hawk helicopter has not been recovered, but authorities believe it landed in the water after disappearing at 8:30 p.m. Remains have begun to wash ashore, although a spokesperson at the Eglin Air Force Base told reporters that they are still conducting a search-and-rescue mission. “We don’t know the amount. We don’t know conditions. We just know they’re finding remains right now.”
