It was before dawn, and most of the ship’s crew lay asleep in their berths aboard the Fitzgerald, a U.S. destroyer, when suddenly the ocean flooded in on the starboard side and disaster loomed.

“Water on deck!” the sailors yelled. “Get out!”

Seawater poured in so fast that it was already waist-deep before the first of 42 sailors in the worst-affected room could climb to safety in the dark. Thirty-five made it. Seven did not. http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-navy-collision-20170818-story.html
