Looks like a coast guard or private helo.

ETA; The crew survived.

I was talking with someone about that yest. Only a matter a time with that many flight ops going on.

Why? Mechanical? Hostile Fire? FWHUA?

Viet Cong. Apparently they were hiding in a rice paddy near one of the dikes.

It was a Dolphin type helo. HH-65 I believe.

Not surprising the birds have been running non-stop since this started and the USCG doesn't have the inventory to rotate AC like the regular military does. That said its a hard environment with wires everywhere, could have hit something.

Certainly not a CG helo by looking at the markings.

It was a PUMA according to the local news. A USCG admiral confirmed IT WAS NOT a USCG helo. It was a private bird, and the USCG rescued it.
