(AP) -The Navy says a second crewmember of five aboard a Navy helicopter that crashed into the ocean off Virginia has died.

The Navy says the crewmember was among four who were plucked from the seas about 20 miles off Virginia. Their helicopter went down during a routine training mission Wednesday morning.

Another of the rescued four died earlier.

 Two other crewmembers remain hospitalized in Norfolk, while a search continues for the fifth.
