UH-60 Black Hawk Helicopters Flight over Hawaii 

(Reuters) – One U.S. Marine was killed and nine injured when a helicopter made a hard landing at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina, the Associated Press reported on Thursday.

The helicopter landed during a training exercise on Wednesday night, AP said. Those hurt were taken to the hospital, and the landing is being investigated, it reported.

The name of the Marine who was killed will not be released for 24 hours, said AP, which cited a statement from Captain Ryan Elizabeth Alvis.

Reuters could not immediately confirm the report.

In March, four soldiers and seven Marines from a special operations unit from Camp Lejeune were killed when a UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter plunged into waters off the Florida Panhandle during a training exercise.
