WASHINGTON, Jan. 8 (Xinhua) -- One crewman died in a hospital and another was missing after a U.S. Navy helicopter crashed Wednesday off the coast in the U.S. state of Virginia.

The dead crewman was one of four crew members who were rescued when the chopper went down about 18 nautical miles (about 33 kilometers) east of Cape Henry, the U.S. Coast Guard said. They were taken to the Norfolk General Hospital for treatment.

At the same time, the authorities continued searching for a fifth crew member, who remained unaccounted for. The identities of the five crew members were not released.

U.S. media quoted Naval Air Forces Atlantic as saying that the helicopter is a MH-53E Sea Dragon, which was on a training mission with another helicopter when the accident occurred.
