Lake Worth police said that one of the pilots was electrocuted after being caught in power lines and the other was found a short distance away in a wooded area. Both were taken to area hospitals. The chief of naval air training in Corpus Christi said in a Facebook post Sunday evening that the instructor pilot was in stable condition, while the student naval aviator was in serious condition.
