I was reading this article today:

3 dead, 2 missing after Navy helicopter crash off San Diego

Three members of a U.S. Navy helicopter crew were killed after their helicopter went down in the waters off San Diego, California, a Navy spokeswoman said Wednesday.

Rescuers are still searching for the two remaining crew members from the helicopter, which went down late Tuesday night, U.S. Navy spokeswoman Karin Burzynski said.

No further details concerning the deaths were immediately available.

Burzynski said the helicopter was operating from the USS Nimitz. The Navy received word that the helicopter went down around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday, she said.

It crashed about 20 miles off the Mexican coast, the Navy said.


The last line caught my attention. 20 miles from the Mexican coast. I'm wondering if this helicopter could have been shot down my one of the drug cartels from Mexico?

I usually don't jump on things like this and honestly don't think of stuff like this, but did this time.

The helicopter crashed 20 miles from the Mexican coast, but could have been operating much closer and tried to get away to safety, and ended up crashing where it did.

I don't know, just a thought.

Hmmmm silence... am I on to something here.

Seriously, no one has an opinion on this thought?
