SAN DIEGO: Eight Marines were missing and one died after an amphibious assault vehicle sank during a training exercise near a military-owned island off the coast of Southern California, authorities said Friday (Saturday in Manila). There were 15 Marines and a Navy sailor in the vehicle Thursday evening when it started taking on water as it traveled from the shores of San Clemente Island to a Navy ship, said Lt. Cameron H. Edinburgh, a Marine Corps spokesman for Camp Pendleton. Two Marines among those rescued were injured, with one hospitalized in critical condition and the other in stable condition, a Marine Corps statement said.
