ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. Bodies have been found on board the destroyer USS Fitzgerald which came close to sinking after a collision with a container ship in Japan's Tokyo Bay on Saturday. The crash tore a gash under the warship's waterline, causing water to flood into compartments where crew were sleeping. Seven sailors were reported missing after the incident. On Sunday the U.S. Navy confirmed divers had found bodies, but wouldn't be drawn on how many. An aerial search of where the collision took place has since been called off.
