Seven missing sailors from the USS Fitzgerald were found dead in flooded berthing compartments following the warship's collision with a merchant vessel, a United States military official said.
The Fitzgerald, an Aegis guided missile destroyer, collided with the Philippine-flagged merchant vessel, more than three times its size, 56 nautical miles south-west of Yokosuka early on Saturday.
It added: "They are now being transferred to Naval Hospital Yokosuka where they will be identified".
The U.S. 7th Fleet said in a statement that the crash damaged two berthing spaces, a machinery room and the radio room.
"There was a big gash under the water", Aucoin said at the Yokosuka naval base, home of the USA 7th Fleet.
The Fitzgerald, which is significantly smaller than the container ship involved in the collision, "suffered damage on her starboard side above and below the waterline" that "resulted in some flooding", the Navy says. In the aftermath of the collision, the Navy destroyer took on water.

The search at sea, has been called off, he added.
