17-May-13 Virginia Beach, US-Virginia (2F)

Two members of the FBI’s ultra-elite Hostage Rescue Team (Special Agents Christopher Lorek and Stephen Shaw) were killed  during a training accident involving a helicopter off the coast of Virginia Beach.  The military statement said very little except that it encountered unspecified difficulties and the agents fell a “significant distance.”
