Sailors’ remains found from John S McCain collision


The US navy has recovered the remains of all 10 sailors killed after a warship collided with an oil tanker near Singapore and Malaysia.

Navy and Marine Corps divers searched for one week in flooded compartments of the guided missile destroyer after John S McCain, the damaged ship, docked at Singapore’s Changi Naval Base.

“The US navy and marine corps divers have now recovered the remains of all 10 USS John S.McCain sailors,” the Seventh Fleet said in a statement on its website on Monday.

The navy found the remains of missing sailors inside sealed sections of the damaged hull of the warship.

The sailors were aged between 20 and 39 years old.
