The lone survivor in a deadly Dec. 6 midair collision of two Marine Corps aircraft off the Japanese coast has been released from the hospital, Marine officials confirmed Monday evening.

In all, six Marines were killed in the tragic air mishap between an F/A-18 and KC-130J.

Two Marines were found during a massive search and rescue effort on the first day of accident — both from the crashed Hornet — but only one survived.

Capt. Jahmar F. Resilard, a Hornet pilot with Marine All Weather Fighter Attack Squadron 242, was declared deceased on Friday.
