“We’re so blessed and truly believe a miracle has occurred here with us not having any victims.”
Virginia Beach mayor Will Sessoms, at a brief news conference confirming that no one had been killed when a U.S. Navy F-18 fighter jet on a training mission crashed into an apartment complex in Virginia Beach.  Six people, including one of the two airmen aboard the plane, were treated at a local hospital and released Friday. One aviator was still hospitalized Saturday morning, according to officials at Sentara Virginia Beach General Hospital, but the Navy described his injuries as minor and said he was doing well.
