American military officials have recovered the bodies of two soldiers who had been listed as missing after an Aug. 8 helicopter crash in western Iraq, the U.S. military command in Baghdad said Friday.

Both soldiers were killed in the crash, officials said.

The names of the soldiers have not yet been released, but military officials in Baghdad identified them as members of the Army’s 82nd Aviation Ambulance Company, which had been flying in support of the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing.

A spokesman in western Iraq said the four other servicemembers on the UH-60 Black Hawk when it crashed were still recovering and listed in stable condition.

The four were identified only as two soldiers and two Navy sailors.

The two killed were members of the Army.

“Our thoughts are with the families of the soldiers,” Maj. Riccoh Player, a Marine spokesman in western Iraq, said.

Military officials said enemy fire does not appear to be a cause of the crash. In a briefing from Baghdad earlier this week, coalition spokesman Maj. Gen. William Caldwell IV said the helicopter had crashed into a body of water after some kind of malfunction.

The aircraft has been located and recovery efforts are ongoing, officials said Friday. An investigation is under way.

The Black Hawk crew had been conducting an area familiarization flight when the crash occurred.
