22-year-old Google employee found dead in NYC office
It has been reported that Scott Krulcik had only been with Google since August after completing an internship at the tech giant. According to multiple reports, the 22-year-old was a Google employee and worked as a software engineer for the company.

Reports citing Marines officials indicate the incident involved a KC-130 refueling aircraft and a F/A-18 fighter jet, carrying 7 personnel in total. For controlled landings at sea, KC-130's are equipped with rafts that would deploy and are equipped with a beacon. "We are thankful for the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force's efforts as they immediately responded in the search and rescue operation", the Marines said. "Whatever you need, we are here for you".

Rescue operations are underway off the coast of Japan for survivors of an aviation "mishap" during a training exercise, according to the USMC. Thank you to @USForcesJapan for their immediate response and rescue efforts.

Accidents, crashes and mishaps, involving USA military aircraft, always draw the ire of the Japanese government as fears about safety consistently grow within the Japanese public already reticent about the U.S. military presence in Japan and the rising incidents of accidents and crime. A recent investigation determined that crash was due in part to pilot error.

The Marines said that the two planes were involved in routine training, including aerial refueling, but that it was still investigating what caused the crash.

It found that a propeller became dislodged and went into the aircraft's fuselage.

"The search and rescue operations continue for the remaining five US Marines who were aboard the KC-130 Hercules and F/A-18 Hornet involved in a mishap about 200 miles off of the coast of Japan around 2:00 a.m. December 6", US Forces, Japan also said, adding, "We are thankful for the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force's, the Japanese Coast Guard, and the US 7th Fleet's efforts as they continue to respond to the search and rescue operation".
