    Navy names sailors killed in Oman helo crash

    The Defense Department on Saturday named two sailors who were killed Thursday when their helicopter crashed in Oman.

    Senior Chief Aviation Warfare Systems Operator Sean P. Sullivan, 40, of St. Louis and Naval Aircrewman (Helicopter) Second Class Joseph P. Fitzmorris, 31, of West Monroe, La., were declared dead following an extensive search of the wreckage and the surrounding areas of the crash, DoD said.

    It says three other crewmembers aboard the downed MH-53E Sea Dragon survived Thursday’s crash.

    The helicopter was assigned to Helicopter Mine Countermeasure Squadron 15, based in Norfolk, Va. It crashed 58 miles (93 kilometers) southwest of the Omani capital Muscat. No hostile activity was suspected.

    The Navy says it is investigating.

    Didn't see this posted. Prayers to the families, friends, and shipmates of the sailors.
