ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - A St. Cloud naval officer who survived a helicopter crash in West Virginia is out of the hospital.

Twenty-six-year-old Ed Henry was among 17 people aboard a Navy helicopter that crashed in a remote area during a training exercise last week. None of the 14 Navy and three National Guard members suffered life-threatening injuries.

Henry's mother, Paula, tells KSTP-TV her son injured his knees and spent the weekend at the University of Virginia Medical Center in Charlottesville.

The Navy says it's investigating the cause of the crash. The helicopter is based in Norfolk, Va.
