(Newser) – A US Black Hawk helicopter crashed in southern Afghanistan today, and four Americans aboard are feared dead, reports CNN. The crash occurred during bad weather, though it's too early to rule out enemy fire as a cause, says a defense official. Only the four Americans were on the Army chopper at the time.
