This is strange.
A US destroyer ship was severely damaged, and seven of the sailors were missing after a cargo ship hit it at night time about 103 kilometers southwest of Yokosuka, Japan. The mid-right side of the USS Fitzgerald was damaged, while the Phillippine-registered cargo ship ACX reportedly had scratches on the left side of its bow.
After the damage, the USS Fitzgerald had limited propulsion and there was flooding in three compartments. The USS harbors more than 200 crew members, out of which 7 were reported missing and 2 sustained injuries, including the captain.
USS Dewey, medical assistance, Navy tugs and naval aircraft were dispatched to help the crew of the destroyer.
A US warship getting hit by a cargo ship. This is like an elephant walking in the night who mistakenly steps on a sleeping cheetah.
