USS John S. McCain Navy Destroyer Collides At Sea
“At least 10 sailors are missing after a US navy guided-missile destroyer collided with a tanker in waters east of Singapore, the second accident involving an American warship in two months.
The US Navy's Seventh Fleet said on Monday that the USS John S McCain sustained damage on its port side aft, or left rear, after colliding with a Liberian-flagged tanker in Malaysian waters at 5:24 am local time (21:24 GMT) as it was heading to Singapore for a routine port visit.
It said five sailors were hurt, four of whom had been evacuated for treatment for non-life threatening injuries, and one who did not require further medical attention.
One of the injured sailors, Operations Specialist 2nd Class Navin Ramdhun, posted a Facebook message telling family and friends that he was OK and awaiting surgery for an arm injury.”
