YOKOSUKA NAVAL BASE, Japan — The crippled USS Fitzgerald was forced to return to its homeport Monday after suffering further damage while being loaded onto a heavy lift vessel for its trip stateside.

The guided-missile destroyer was sent back to repair two new punctures in the ship’s hull, the Navy announced Monday afternoon. The punctures were caused by the heavy lift vessel MV Transshelf’s steel support structure while the Fitzgerald was being loaded. https://www.stripes.com/news/uss-fitzgerald-returns-to-yokosuka-after-suffering-damage-during-loading-process-1.499622
