A second Marine has died from injuries suffered in Sunday's military aircraft crash in Hawaii, military officials said Wednesday.

The Marine's next of kin was notified, although the name of the victim was not immediately released. Two other Marines remained in the hospital in stable condition, according to the 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit, which is based out of Camp Pendleton in Southern California.

Twenty-two Marines were on board the MV-22B Osprey, an airplane-and-helicopter hybrid, when it crashed during a training exercise around 11:40 a.m. local time at Bellows Air Force Station on the island of Oahu. The cause of the accident was still under investigation.

Military officials have identified the other fatality as 24-year-old Lance Cpl. Joshua Barron of Spokane, Washington.
