Bodies Of Several Missing Sailors Found After USS John S. McCain Collision

The remains of several missing U.S. Navy sailors were discovered Tuesday after the guided-missile destroyer USS John S. McCain and a tanker collided early Monday in the waters east of Singapore and the Straits of Malacca. Divers found the bodies of “some” of the missing 10 sailors in a compartment that had sealed to stop the ship from flooding after it was heavily damaged, said the commander of the U.S. Pacific Fleet, Admiral Scott Swift. This is the second crash in the Pacific involving a ship from the Navy’s 7th Fleet in two months, following June’s collision between the USS Fitzgerald and a container ship, which killed seven sailors.
