HONOLULU (AP) — The U.S. military says a second Marine has died of injuries he received after an Osprey aircraft crashed during a training exercise last weekend in Hawaii.

Marine Corps Capt. Brian Block said in a Wednesday statement that two other Marines remain hospitalized in stable condition. The crash also killed 24-year-old Lance Cpl. Joshua Barron, of Spokane, Washington.

The MV-22B Osprey, a hybrid aircraft that can fly like a helicopter and a fixed-wing airplane, went down Sunday at a military base outside Honolulu with 21 Marines and a Navy corpsman on board.

Block says the second fallen Marine’s family has been notified, and his identity will be released later.
