Two Bodies Found in Port of Los Angeles Helicopter Crash

Members of the Los Angeles Port Police dive team located wreckage of a downed helicopter that crashed in the Port of Los Angeles with two bodies inside.

The crash of a small black helicopter was reported on Wednesday by several passengers aboard a outbound cruise ship, following which the search and rescue parties were dispatched.

The Coast Guard launched two 45-foot response boat-medium boatcrews from Coast Guard Station Los Angeles-Long Beach, a MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew from Coast Guard Forward Operating Base Point Mugu and Coast Guard Cutter Blackfin, a 87-foot patrol boat homeported in Santa Barbara.

The Los Angeles Port Police, Long Beach HarborPatrol and Los Angeles City Fire Department also had several water assets searching.

The search was ended yesterday and the Port of Los Angeles has been open to all vessel traffic.
