Navy destroyer came close to sinking after a “traumatic” collision off the coast of Japan

 REPORTING FROM THE WASHINGTON POST:

YOKOSUKA, Japan — A U.S. Navy destroyer came close to sinking after a “traumatic” collision off the coast of Japan, the commander of the Seventh Fleet said Sunday, after the bodies of the missing sailors were found in the berthing compartments of the stricken vessel.

Vice Adm. Joseph P. Aucoin declined to say how many of the seven missing sailors had been recovered, because the families of those who died were still being informed on Sunday.

But Aucoin said that the search and rescue mission was over, and The Navy Times reported that the bodies of all seven missing sailors had been found in the ship’s flooded berthing compartments.
