A US Navy F-18 Hornet crashed in the water on the Naval Air Station Key West property late Wednesday afternoon. The two pilots ejected and were later found, according to the US Navy.

Rescue crews recovered both pilots after search and rescue efforts and they were taken by ambulance to Lower Keys Medical Center, the US Navy reported Wednesday evening. Their condition has not been revealed.

Hecht told Local News 10 before the pilots were found that he was unable to comment on whether anyone sustained injuries in the crash. "I can confirm we have an F/A-18 down," Hecht said. "It was doing some training off of Key West."
