ATLANTA (Reuters) - One U.S. soldier was killed and two were injured when a Black Hawk helicopter made a "hard landing" on Wednesday night during a training flight at Hunter Army Airfield near Savannah, Georgia, the Army said on Thursday.

The name of the soldier killed has not been released. The injured soldiers were taken to a local hospital for treatment, the Army said. The Army said it is investigating.
