Tokyo, Japan:

Seven crew members were missing on Sunday after an apparent accident involving two Japanese military helicopters off the coast, local media reported.

The helicopters appear to have crashed late Saturday during a night training off the Izu Islands in the Pacific Ocean, broadcaster NHK reported.

One person was rescued, the reports said.

Communications with one helicopter were lost at 10:38 PM (1338 GMT) and about 25 minutes later authorities realized that communications had also been lost with a second aircraft.
