H8 naval collision

Ten U.S. Navy sailors are missing and five were injured after the USS John S. McCain guided missile destroyer collided with an oil tanker near Singapore this morning. It’s the second time this summer that a Navy ship has collided with another vessel at sea. In June, seven U.S. sailors died after the USS Fitzgerald collided with a container ship south of Japan. When asked about the collision, President Trump said, “Too bad, too bad.”
