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 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.
