The Navy said the cause of the accident was under investigation.
The crash comes two days after authorities acknowledged that the crash of another navy helicopter in July that killed 14 Marines was caused by a lack of fuel.
On Thursday, the Attorney General’s Office reported that the helicopter had run out of fuel following the operation to arrest drug lord Rafael Caro Quintero.
The Black Hawk crashed on July 15 in Los Mochis, a city in the state of Sinaloa near Mexico’s Pacific coast, hours after marines captured Caro Quintero in the mountains.
Caro Quintero is wanted for extradition to the United States for the 1985 murder of Drug Enforcement Administration agent Kiki Camarena. That extradition process continues.
The Attorney General’s office said in a statement that the investigation had ruled out the possibility that the helicopter was shot down in an attack and that the manufacturer’s analysis of the plane’s flight recorders concluded. it ran out of fuel.
