USS Fitzgerald Crash: Sailors Found Dead After Japan Collision


The collision left a huge gash down the right-hand side of the ship

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

 

Sailors missing after the USS Fitzgerald collided with a container ship off Japan have been found dead, the US Navy and Japanese media says.

 

Seven sailors were left missing and three injured after Saturday's collision, which the US Navy said almost sank the destroyer.

 

The US Navy said rescue workers found the bodies on Sunday after gaining access to damaged parts of the ship.

 

It said they will be taken to a Japanese hospital to be identified.

 

The incident took place some 56 nautical miles (104km) south-west of the Japanese port city of Yokosuka, at about 02:30 local time on Saturday (17:30 GMT Friday).

 

Japanese broadcaster NHK said the collision led to the flooding of the crew's sleeping quarters while they were asleep.

 

"The damage was significant," 7th Fleet commander Vice-Admiral Joseph P Aucoin said. "There was a big gash under the water." Repairs would take some time to complete, he said.

 

At a press conference in Japan on Sunday, Vice Adm Aucoin would not confirm how many remains had been found so far. Families of the sailors are being notified, he said.

 

"This loss is something we all feel," he said.

 

Marine traffic records suggest the ACX Crystal, a 222-metre (730ft) Filipino-flagged container ship, made a sudden U-turn roughly 25 minutes before the crash. It is not known why it changed course.

 

Similar records for the USS Fitzgerald are not publicly available.

 

The Navy ship's starboard side was heavily damaged in the collision, but the vessel later managed to slowly return to its base in Yokosuka, with the assistance of US navy tug boats.

 

Japan's coastguard said the ACX Crystal had a gross tonnage of just under 30,000, about three times that of the USS Fitzgerald.

 

It sustained lighter damage to its port bow.

 

The Associated Press agency said there were no injuries reported among the 20 Filipino crew members on board the ACX Crystal.

 

It remains at port in Tokyo.
