Army removes bodies of 4 killed in WA copter crash

4 bodies removed from site where 2 helicopters crashed at Army base in Washington By The Associated Press

RAINIER, Wash. (AP) ' The Army has removed the bodies of the four aviators killed in the crash of two helicopters on Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington state.

Lt. Col. Gary Dangerfield said Tuesday officials are still notifying families. The crash victims' names will not be made public until 24 hours after family notification.

Dangerfield says investigators from the Combat Readiness Center at Fort Rucker, Ala., are expected on the scene by Tuesday night.

It's still unclear whether the helicopters collided on the Monday night training flight or crashed separately.
