I really feel bad about this... :(

SEOUL — A U.S. Navy investigation is now underway into how the USS John S. McCain collided with an oil tanker three times its size off the Strait of Malacca early Monday morning, as the search for 10 missing sailors continues.

The guided-missile destroyer is now at the Changi Naval Base in Singapore, and photos show it has a large hole in its side at the waterline. https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/stricken-us-destroyer-arrives-in-singapore-after-collision-10-sailors-missing/2017/08/21/8ad075b0-8646-11e7-a50f-e0d4e6ec070a_story.html?utm_term=.70e428fa8733
