Eight members of the U.S. Marine Corps remain hospitalized after a fiery aircraft crash that left 3 of their colleagues dead. Twelve other survivors were discharged from the hospital Monday.

A Marine V-22 Osprey went down at 9:30 a.m. Sunday on Melville Island in Australia during multinational training drills.

Northern Territory Chief Minister Natasha Fyles said that within hours of the accident, all 20 survivors were flown to a hospital in the north coast city of Darwin, which was 50 miles away from the remote island where the crash occurred, according to the Associated Press.
