During a nighttime training flight, two Japanese navy helicopters, each carrying four crew members, crashed in the Pacific Ocean south of Tokyo, possibly colliding with each other, according to the country's defence minister on Sunday.

Tragically, one crew member recovered from the waters was later declared deceased, while rescuers continued to search for the remaining seven who were still missing.

The incident occurred late Saturday near Torishima island, approximately 600 kilometres (370 miles) south of Tokyo, involving two SH-60K choppers from the Maritime Self-Defense Force, Defense Minister Minoru Kihara informed reporters.

The seven-phase Lok Sabha polls season will witness an unprecedented rise in the heatwave in most parts of the country, the India Meteorological Department warned here on Monday.
