Just saw on WJAL TV (Hargerstown, MD -- Their website is awful and useless) a report of a Blackhawk from Ft. Pickett VA that crashed in the Monroe/Greenbriar area around 1530. Anyone hear anything?

EDIT: Saw this while looking for an audio feed, which is offline, on the IPN incident.

(LEWISBURG - 134.400/243.000) MH-60S US NAVY KNIGHTHAWK HAS GONE OFF RADAR IN AREA OF GREENBRIAR AIRPORT MILITARY SEARCH & RESCUE IN PROGRESS [FLA124]

Sounds like there were some people that survived and they were asking for personnel to bring chainsaws since the scene is located in a very remote location.

1840 - chopper is in the trees and scene is inaccessible due to snow. 1/4 mile north of Bald Knob.
1915 - Crash truck dispatch to the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) in Green Bank, WV. Sounds like they were able to get to them maybe via foot. Also heard on the stream they were flying one patient to UVA in Charlottesville, VA. DoH seems to be getting a grader en route to assist with access to the scene.
1932 - Personnel with snowmobiles are en route.
