US Navy identifies five sailors who died in helicopter crash

The US Navy on Sunday identified five sailors who died when a helicopter crashed in the Pacific Ocean off of Southern California.

They were Lt Bradley A Foster, 29, a pilot from Oakhurst, California; Lt Paul R Fridley, 28, a pilot from Annandale, Virginia; Naval air crewman (Helicopter) 2nd Class James P Buriak, 31, from Salem, Virginia; hospital corpsman 2nd Class Sarah F Burns, 31, from Severna Park, Maryland and hospital corpsman 3rd Class Bailey J Tucker, 21, from St Louis, Missouri.

The MH-60S crashed on 31 August about 70 miles (112 km) off San Diego during what the Navy described as routine flight operations. It was operating from the deck of the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln.

One sailor was rescued after the crash. Five sailors aboard the aircraft carrier were injured but were said to be in stable condition.
