A search-and-rescue operation was underway Tuesday night off the coast of San Diego after the crash of an MH-60S helicopter from the USS Abraham Lincoln, a Nimitz-class aircraft carrier about 60 nautical miles from shore, according to a report.

Multiple Coast Guard and “Navy air and surface assets” are assisting in the search, the report said.
