"They did what they were trained to do", said Sykes, who said she hopes her son, from Herrin, Illinois, can come home to be with family as he works through what happened. The destroyer returned to Yokosuka on Saturday evening with the help of tug boats.

The deceased sailors are: Dakota Kyle Rigsby, 19, of Palmyra, Virginia; Shingo Alexander Douglass, 25, of San Diego; Ngoc T. Truong Huynh, 25, of Oakville, Connecticut; Noe Hernandez, 26, of Weslaco, Texas; Carlosvictor Ganzon Sibayan, 23, of Chula Vista, California; Xavier Alex Martin, 24, of Halethorpe, Maryland; and Gary Leo Rehm Jr., 37, of Elyria, Ohio. As search and rescue crews gained access to the spaces that were damaged during the collision this morning, the missing Sailors were located in the flooded berthing compartments. Most of the more than 200 sailors aboard would have been asleep in their berths at the time of the pre-dawn crash. Aerial television news footage showed its bow on the left side was dented and scraped, but it did not appear to have suffered any major structural damage. Others injured were treated aboard the ship, the Navy said.

In a brief written statement, the U.S. Pacific Fleet in Hawaii said the Navy requested assistance from the Japanese Coast Guard.

The Japanese coast guard said it received an emergency call from the container ship, the ACX Crystal, reporting the collision around 2:20 a.m. (17:20 GMT Friday).

Several other United States crew members were injured in the accident and had to be evacuated by air to hospital, including the vessel's commanding officer Bryce Benson, who is "undergoing treatment", Aucoin said. "I am humbled by the bravery and tenacity of the Fitzgerald crew". Bryce Benson, the Fitzgerald's commanding officer, who is in a stable condition in hospital.

The ACX Crystal weighs 29,060 tons and is 222 meters (730 feet) long, the coast guard said, much larger than the 8,315-ton Navy destroyer.


Acting Secretary of the Navy Sean Stackley says the Navy is deeply saddened and promised a full investigation into a collision between a destroyer and a container ship off Japan that killed seven sailors. Aucoin wouldn't speculate on the cause of the collision and would order a thorough investigation. But on Sunday, a group of accident investigators from the Japanese transport ministry found damage to the container ship that had been hidden under the waterline when it arrived in Tokyo the previous night.

Nippon Yusen said all of the ACX Crystal's 20-member Filipino crew members were safe.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe sent a sympathy message Sunday to President Trump. "We are struck by deep sorrow", Abe said in the message.

Abe wrote, "I express my heartfelt solidarity to America at this hard time", praising USA servicemen in Japan under the allies' bilateral security pact.

Two other sailors are recovering in hospital with minor injuries, he added.

"Just heard the sweetest voice and saw a wonderful face".
