The fuselage of a helicopter that crashed off the southwest coast with four people on was found 75 m below the surface off the southern tip of Gageo Island in South Jeolla Province on Thursday.
The Coast Guard helicopter crashed during a mission to airlift a child to hospital last Friday.
"We found the wreckage with the underwater camera of the Navy submarine rescue ship Cheonghaejin after scanning the seabed with the sonar," a coast guard said.
The bodies of two pilots were found inside still wearing their seat belts.
An emergency rescue worker and a mechanic were also on board. The mechanic was rescued injured but later died and the rescue worker remains missing.
