A U.S. helicopter went down Tuesday near the town of Habaniyah, west of Baghdad, the Coalition Public Information Center (CPIC) said.

However, the noon (Central European Time) Headline News broadcast indicated the crew survived this crash, thank the Lord.

But then there is also this:

At least two explosions ripped through different parts of Baghdad on Monday, with one killing a U.S. soldier and the other apparently targeting journalists.

A U.S. soldier was killed and two others wounded by a homemade bomb that went off in central Baghdad, the 1st Armored Division said.

All three were soldiers of the division. The attack took place about 10 a.m. (3 a.m. ET) and is under investigation, according to a statement from the 1st Armored Division. No other details of the attack were released.

The flag in front of 1st Brigade HQ in Friedberg is not at half staff, indicating the 1AD casualty was not from the 1st Brigade.
