Moody Air Force Base - Eight troops were killed and 14 injured in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan. Among the injured was a pararescueman from a South Georgia Air Force Base.
An airman from Moody Air Force Base was seriously injured in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan.
22 year-old Mark "Daniel" Houghton was on board a Chinook helicopter that crashed Sunday after experiencing engine problems and a loss of power.
Eight of the 22 troops on board were killed.
Houghton's parents in North Carolina say Daniel suffered multiple injuries, the worst being one to the lungs. He was transported to a hospital in Germany.
His parents say they are hopeful he'll be transferred to a hospital in the states soon and are just happy his injuries were not worse. "Our prayers go out to all those who were killed or injured with Daniel. Our hearts are going out to them. We have our son and there are others who can't say that, that don't have that luxury," said Daniel's father George Houghton.
Houghton is stationed at Moody Air Force Base and is a pararescuer with the 38th Rescue Squadron.
His parents say he volunteered to go on this tour of duty to Afghanistan.
