Prayers Needed: Worst Fears Confirmed For U.S. Navy Sailors On USS Fitzgerald

The bodies of sailors missing since the destroyer the USS Fitzgerald collided with a container vessel off Japan have been found in flooded compartments in the damaged ship.

“As search and rescue crews gained access to the spaces that were damaged during the collision this morning, the missing sailors were located,” the United States Navy said on Sunday.

The statement did not say if all seven missing crew members were found in the ship, however Japanese media reported that all seven had been found dead.

The sailors were reported missing after the guided missile destroyer USS Fitzgerald collided with a Philippine-flagged container ship south of Tokyo Bay in Japan early on Saturday.
