Body of Marine who fell from aircraft in North Carolina found

A spokesman says the body of a U.S. Marine who fell from an aircraft during a training flight has been found.

Spokesman Mike Barton said the body was found Tuesday. Barton said the Marine was a member of the 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing and a crewmember of an Osprey that was conducting a training flight Monday evening.

Barton said it appears the Marine died as a result of the fall. The Marine's identity wasn't immediately released pending notification of his family.

Bladen County Coroner Hubert Kinlaw said the body was discovered on state forestry land 96 miles south of Raleigh.

The Marine disappeared about 45 miles west of Marine Corps Air Station New River. Barton said he didn't know how high the Osprey was flying or the number of crew aboard at the time of the accident.
