Apache helicopter crash kills two

Two National Guard members were killed when a helicopter crashed Friday during a training exercise in Mississippi, officials said.

The Apache AH-64 helicopter went down at about 2 p.m. while flying "a routine training flight" in Prentiss County, in the northeast corner of the state, Gov. Tate Reeves said.

Authorities haven't identified the two National Guard members who died, but the Mississippi National Guard told WTVA-TV that their families had been notified and that they were from the Army Aviation Support Facility in Tupelo, Mississippi.

"Mississippi will always be grateful for their service and we will never forget them," Reeves said.
