Two Army National Guard servicemen have been found dead after an AH-64 apache helicopter crash-landed into Galveston Bay, Texas, 25 miles southeast of Houston.
Army officials confirmed Wednesday that two soldiers who took off from Ellington Field Joint Reserve Base were found by Coast Guard divers hours after the accident occurred. Officials have not been willing to give any more details until a full investigation into the incident has been conducted.
“All we know is that all our pilots are highly trained, highly qualified veterans that have been flying this aircraft for many years.” Master Sergeant Sean Cowher told reporters, according to KPRC. “It was just a routine flight”
Local news organizations on the ground have confirmed that one of the soldiers was from Houston, while the other was from out of town.
