Divers have located human remains in warship: U.S. admiral

Divers have located human remains in warship: U.S. admiral

Malaysian navy crews participating in a three-nation air and sea search for the sailors had also found a body, Swift confirmed.

They include two involving fatalities, two USA officials said, according to the Journal.

A search and rescue operation had been under way for 10 missing sailors.

The pre-dawn collision was the fourth major accident for the U.S. Pacific Fleet this year and has prompted a review of its operations.

On Wednesday, the US Navy announced that it had relieved Seventh Fleet Commander Vice Admiral Joseph Aucoin from his duties citing a loss of confidence.

The Fitzgerald and McCain warships are both part of the Navy's 7th fleet, based in Yokosuka, Japan. "Significant damage to the hull resulted in flooding to nearby compartments, including crew berthing, machinery and communications rooms".

A commander for the U.S. Navy said divers located the remains in a flooded compartment.

On June 17, the USS Fitzgerald collided with a container ship about 90 miles from Japan, killing seven American sailors.

Five sailors were hurt in the collision between the guided-missile destroyer and the 183-metre Alnic MC, an oil and chemical tanker.

"It's premature to say how many and what the status of those bodies is", Adm. Scott Swift said at a news conference aboard the ship Tuesday.

The USS America, docked at the same Singapore pier as the McCain, is also providing food and shelter to sailors assigned to the damaged Navy ship. Efforts are underway to drain the flooded parts of the ship and restore its auxiliary systems, the US Navy said.

Navy officials are now investigating the role that training, manning and other internal fleet processes may have played in the deadly collisions, and have imposed a rare operational pause following the accidents.
