    MOBILE, Ala. – One Coast Guard member is dead and three others are missing after their helicopter crashed during a training mission Tuesday night in Mobile Bay, Ala.
    The Coast Guard MH-65C chopper went down about three miles from shore in the bay, a 413-square-mile inlet jutting into Alabama from the Gulf of Mexico.
    Rescue crews found one of the crew members unresponsive and he was later pronounced dead, the Coast Guard said in a press release.
    "Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the crew members during this difficult time," said Capt. Don Rose, commanding officer of Coast Guard Sector Mobile. "We are working through the night to continue to conduct a robust search for the three crew members who are still missing and we appreciate the assistance of all of the agencies and personnel who are volunteering their time and resources to assist with the search and rescue efforts."
