The U.S. Navy is promising to take "a much more aggressive stance" as it tries to determine what led to a second collision between a U.S. guided-missile destroyer and a commercial vessel in as many months.

Ten American sailors are missing and five injured, with the USS John S. McCain sustaining "significant damage" as a result of Monday’s collision with a tanker near the Strait of Malacca.

Photos released by the U.S. Navy show a gaping hole, below the waterline, on the John S. McCain’s port side. A statement from the U.S. 7th Fleet said the damage was "significant" and that some sleeping areas and communications rooms flooded as a result.

U.S. Navy and Marine Corps divers searched Tuesday for the missing sailors in sealed compartments in damaged sections of the ship. Meanwhile, ships and aircraft from the Malaysian Navy and Singapore's Navy also continued searching the area where the collision happened.

In response to the incident, the Navy ordered an immediate operational pause across the U.S. fleet.

The collision between USS John S. McCain and the Liberian-flagged tanker ship Alnic MC early Monday is the second involving a ship from the U.S. Navy's 7th Fleet in the Pacific in two months. Seven sailors died in June when the USS Fitzgerald and a container ship hit each other in waters off Japan.
