22 soldiers injured in Fort Hunter Liggett tent collapse 

Fort Hunter Liggett
A training accident injured 22 soldiers Wednesday night at Fort Hunter Liggett. During a landing in a remote training area, a U.S. Army UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter’s landing rotor wash blew over a tent structure. There were no fatalities.

Most of the injuries were minor and were treated on site. Two of the injured were evacuated by air to Fresno, Calif. and two were evacuated by ground to Twin Cites Hospital in Templeton.

This incident occurred during an annual U.S. Army Reserve exercise, Combat Support Training Exercise (CSTX) that trains Army Reserve and Army National Guard Soldiers.
