No survivors found in Florida firefighting helicopter crash

LEESBURG, Fla. [AP] – At least one person is dead after a four-person firefighting helicopter crash in central Florida, officials said.

The helicopter crashed into a marsh near Leesburg International Airport during a training exercise around 4 p.m. Tuesday, the Federal Aviation Administration said in a news release.

One body was recovered on Tuesday, but no other survivors have been found, Leesburg Fire Rescue said in a Facebook post.

“The crash appears to be a total loss,” the post said.

Rescue crews worked for hours after the crash to see if there were any survivors, Leesburg police Capt. Joe Iozzi said, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

The FAA and National Transportation Safety Board will investigate. Officials did not immediately release additional information.
