Startling new photographs have been released showing previously unseen damage to the USS Fitzgerald.
The destroyer collided with a cargo ship off Japan’s Izu Peninsula on June 17, causing the death of seven sailors.
The new pictures, which were released by the Seventh Fleet based in Yokosuka, were taken while the ship was docked and sailors were inspecting the damage. For the first time, damage down to the hull below the waterline is clearly visible.
