8:03 am
the navy saying those rescued are in good condition, while search and rescue efforts for three personnel continue. the aircraft was part of a naval exercise with 14,000 u.s. personnel participating. but it crashed during a routine flight, the u.s. military says. it will raise questions, though. this year, the u.s. navy has seen two fatal accidents in that region. matt? >> keir simmons on this story from london. thank you very much. gabby douglas has added her name to the growing list of young women who say they were abused by former u.s. olympic team doctor, larry nassar. >> douglas shared an emotional post on tuesday, expressing her support for teammates who have come forward, and asking followers to, quote, please hear my heart. three-time gold medalist, gabby douglas took to twitter to say, she, too, was abused by larry nassar.
8:04 am
i didn't share my experience as well as other things. for years, we were conditioned to stay silent. and some things were painful. the statement comes a week after her teammate, 23-year-old aly raisman, revealed in her book, that nassar molested her, as well. >> from the moment that i realized that it happened to me, i wanted to, you know, talk about it. society sometimes makes it hard for people to come forward because you always have people that victim-shame. we have to stop that because it's awful. >> reporter: on social media, raisman added, just because a woman does a sexy photo shoot or wears a sexy outfit, doesn't give a man the right to shame her or not believe her when she comes forward about sexual abuse. 21-year-old gabby douglas responded with a post that has been deleted. it is our responsibility to dress modestly and be classy. dressing in a provocative way entices the wrong crowd.

simone biles said she expected more from her teammate. on tuesday, the olympian elaborated. i want to reiterate my apology to a comment one of my teammates posted. i know some of you are about to take what i am about to say as insincere. but i wanted to provide context. douglas added, i know what you wear, it doesn't give anyone the right to abuse you. it would be like saying because of the leotards we were wearing, it was our fault that we were accused by larry nassar. and now critics of douglas turning to support, saying the olympic star will never stop promoting strength and courage. usa gymnastics released a statement that says, usa gymnastics understands that sharing a personal story requires courage and fortitude.
