A US Navy helicopter crashed onto the flight deck of an aircraft carrier in the Philippines Sea on Friday, injuring some personnel on board.
The MH-60 Seahawk hit the flight deck of the USS Ronald Reagan shortly after takeoff around 9 a.m., according to a statement released by the Navy. All of the injured are in stable condition and are being evaluated by medical staff. The Navy did not say how many people were injured but that some “will be medically evacuated ashore” without specifying a location. An investigation has been opened into the cause of the crash, according to the statement.
