Navy: Divers recover body of missing pilot

– The Navy says it has recovered the body of a pilot who had been missing since a helicopter crashed last week off the coast of Virginia.

In a news release, the Navy’s Fleet Forces Command says divers recovered the body of 39-year-old Lt. Sean Christopher Snyder, of Santee, Calif., on Tuesday, a day after locating the helicopter’s cockpit.

Five crewmembers were aboard the MH-53E Sea Dragon when it crashed Jan. 8 about 18 miles off the coast of Virginia Beach. The other four were pulled from the water, but two died later at a hospital. The other two have been released from the hospital.

The Navy says the helicopter was taking part in routine mine countermeasure training when it crashed.
