CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas -- A 22-year-old Oklahoman was one of three crewmembers killed  when their Navy helicopter crashed near Corpus Christi.

David Davison, of Guthrie, Okla., died in Wednesday's crash during foggy conditions.

Also killed was Lt. Joshua Gross of Alameda, Calif., 30, and Alexander LeMarr, 25, of Parker, Colo.  

One crewmember survived and was upgraded Friday from critical to fair condition.
