    CNN) Seven missing sailors from the USS Fitzgerald were found dead in flooded berthing compartments following the warship's collision with a merchant vessel, a US military official said.

    The Navy's 7th Fleet said searchers found the bodies Sunday morning, Japan time, after the guided-missile destroyer returned to its base in Japan.

    So sad. Will we know what really happened. The incident seems strange.

    A U.S. warship struck by a container vessel in Japanese waters failed to respond to warning signals or take evasive action before a collision that killed seven of its crew, according to a report of the incident by the Philippine cargo ship's captain.
    In the first detailed account from one of those directly involved, the cargo ship's captain said the ACX Crystal had signaled with flashing lights after the Fitzgerald 'suddenly' steamed on to a course to cross its path.

    The container ship steered hard to starboard to avoid the warship, but hit the Fitzgerald 10 minutes later at 1:30 am, according to a copy of Captain Ronald Advincula's report.

    Reports now saying the hull was twisted in the collision.

    That could be potentially unrepairable. Or at least not cost effective to repair.
