A military helicopter crashed off the coast of Southern California late Friday, Navy officials said. All seven crew members were rescued. The Navy HH-60H Seahawk helicopter crashed about 100 miles (160 kilometers) from San Diego around 9 p.m. (0600 GMT Saturday), Navy spokeswoman Lt. Cmdr. Liz Meydenbauer said. The crew was rescued soon after. "They were picked up pretty quickly," Meydenbauer said. None of the crew was seriously hurt. Meydenbauer said the helicopter was lost at sea.
