The MN-53E Sea Dragon helicopter went down in the Atlantic 18 nautical miles east of Cape Henry, Naval Air Forces Atlantic told WAVY.com. Five people were onboard the helicopter when it went down - four people were recovered and taken to Sentara Norfolk, according to WAVY. One of the people recovered was confirmed dead around 1:40 p.m.
