A Marine Corps statement says special equipment was used Friday to recover the seven Marines and one Navy sailor. One other person, a Marine, died after being rescued.

The recovered bodies will be flown to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware to be prepared for burial and then will be released to their families.

The amphibious assault vehicle sank on July 30 after routine training.

The Marines were based at nearby Camp Pendleton.

The accident remains under investigation.
