Air Force member goes missing during training jump over Gulf of Mexico

A US Air Force airman went missing Tuesday after falling from a C-130 aircraft into the Gulf of Mexico off the Florida coast. The fall happened during a parachute-jump exercise out of Hurlburt Field. Crew members aboard the aircraft saw the airman treading water but lost sight of him while making a turn in an effort to pick him up. The Air Force, Coast Guard, and Army were involved in the search.

Lost sight of him after he landed in the water safely - he didn't splat into it.
