USS Fitzgerald Officer pleads guilty to role in deadly collision

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK CITY) —  A junior Navy officer pleaded guilty on Tuesday to her role in last year’s deadly collision involving the destroyer USS Fitzgerald off the coast of Japan that killed seven sailors.Lt. j.g. Sarah Coppock’s guilty plea came on the first day of Navy court proceedings for four of the destroyer’s officers, including the ship’s commanding officer.About 1:30 a.m. on June 17, 2017, the USS Fitzgerald collided with the container ship MCX Crystal as both ships transited through the busy shipping lanes outside of Tokyo Bay.At the time of the collision, Coppock was serving as the Officer of the Deck, the officer overseeing the bridge team that was steering the ship. At Tuesday’s hearing, Coppock entered a guilty plea to a charge of “dereliction in the performance of duties through neglect contributing to the deaths” of the seven sailors. Coppock acknowledged that, in violation of the commanding officer’s standing orders and navigation rules, she had failed to communicate with the ship’s Combat Information Center, did not report ship contacts with the commanding officer and did not alert the ship’s crew of an imminent collision.During questioning from Capt. Charles Purnell, the presiding judge at Tuesday’s special court-martial, Coppock admitted that in violation of Cmdr. Bryce Benson’s order, she had not contacted him whenever a ship sailed within 6,000 yards of the destroyer. That happened 13 times during her four-hour watch the night of the collision, with some ships coming as close as 650 yards of the destroyer. Coppock acknowledged she had “low confidence” in some of the sailors standing watch in the ship’s Combat Information Center (CIC), one reason why she never checked with the sailors manning the sophisticated radars in the CIC who could have also checked the distances of passing commercial ships.In sentencing arguments Lt. Cmdr. Paul Hochmuth noted that Coppock was not solely to blame for the collision and has taken responsibility for her actions. But he cited her “loss of complete situational awareness” of the destroyer’s passage through the busy shipping lane. “She chose to be blind and never asked for help from the CIC,” said Hochmuth.Coppock’s attorney, Lt. Ryan Mooney, noted that she had not shied away from her role in the collision, but pointed to staffing shortfalls aboard the Fitzgerald and a lack of training among officers as indicators of broader issues aboard the ship and the U.S.-based fleet in Japan.Under the guilty plea agreement, Coppock was sentenced to receive a letter of reprimand and three months of half-pay. But because she had earlier received a similar non-judicial punishment, the new sentence only added an additional month of half-pay for the junior officer.The Navy’s comprehensive investigation into the collision found that it was avoidable and was the result of a series of basic failures by the ship’s crew and officers.After the investigation, the Navy filed criminal charges against four of the ship’s officers, including Benson. Preliminary court hearings for two junior officers will be held at the Washington Navy Yard on Wednesday, Benson’s court hearing is slated for May 21.The seven sailors killed in the collision were Gunner’s Mate Seaman Dakota Kyle Rigsby, 19, from Palmyra, Va.;Yeoman 3rd Class Shingo Alexander Douglass, 25, from San Diego, Calif.; Sonar Technician 3rd Class Ngoc T Truong Huynh, 25, from Oakville, Conn.; Gunner’s Mate 2nd Class Noe Hernandez, 26, from Weslaco, Texas; Fire Controlman 2nd Class Carlosvictor Ganzon Sibayan, 23, from Chula Vista, Calif.; Personnel Specialist 1st Class Xavier Alec Martin, 24, from Halethorpe, Md. and Fire Controlman 1st Class Gary Leo Rehm Jr., 37, from Elyria, Ohio.As part of the sentencing hearing that followed Coppock’s guilty plea family members of some of the fallen sailors gave emotional statements about the emotional trauma they have lived through since the sudden loss of their loved ones.“I am perpetually sad and I cry all the time,” said Terri Rigsby, Dakota Rigsby’s stepmother. “This collision should have never occurred.”“I blame the Navy for the loss of my son,” she said reading from a statement written by her husband Lloyd who also wrote he could not forgive the Navy for his son’s death.Xavier Alec Martin’s father Darrold Martin told the court: “It’s not right for a parent to bury a child.”Speaking through tears, Dora Hernandez, described how her three-year-old son will not have personal memories of his father, Noe Hernandez.In emotional testimony of her own, Coppock expressed her remorse to the family members in the courtroom and said: “All I can do now is take responsibility.”As a memorial to those that perished in the collision, Coppock has a tattoo on her left wrist that includes the latitude and longitude of the location of the collision, as well as seven green clovers representing the seven fallen sailors and the ship’s motto “Protect Your People”.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Corrupt government officials in Uganda get tough warning from Museveni

first_img“This must stop or else people will be embarrassed. You shouldn’t ask investors to pay your children’s school fees, or do this and that. If you have a problem, call a clan meeting and solve it as a family, not through corruption,” President Museveni said in a series of tweets. Museveni revealed that the World Bank has issued loans and grants of $1.8 billion but only 10% of it has been utilized.“Tough action will be taken against government officials who negligently fail to utilize these funds,” he warned. Uganda’s Yoweri Museveni has issued a “tough warning” to government officials against corruption and the underutilization of loan funds.The country’s president expressed his disgust on some government officials’ attitudes who “solicit bribes and favours from investors, frustrating them in the process” during a cabinet meeting on Friday.center_img Museveni earlier announced that Uganda has recovered from its economical downturn and the country needs to kick out poverty.He also called on the security organs to stop “negative elements infiltrating decision-making centres of government.”last_img read more

Advice Issued By NHS D&G As Result Of Winter Flu Outbreak

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to LinkedInLinkedInLinkedInAdvice is being offered in Dumfries and Galloway on how to manage the flu and how to help prevent the spread of the virus.As people across the region suffer as a result of the seasonal outbreak sweeping the country, Elaine Ross from NHS Dumfries and Galloway’s Infection Control Team has addressed the current situation and what measures people can take.NHS Dumfries and Galloway Infection Control Manager Elaine Ross is offering advice and guidance around the fluAdvising anyone currently suffering from the flu, Elaine said: “It’s a case of taking simple painkillers to ease the aches and pains, and drinking plenty of fluids – make sure you avoid getting dehydrated.“If you already have the flu we’d advise people to follow the message ‘Catch It, Bin It, Kill It’.“So if you are coughing, make sure you have plenty of paper tissues with you, and make sure you throw those away properly and then use alcohol hand rub – which works very well in helping to prevent the illness being spread.“And if you don’t have the flu, it’s not too late to get the vaccine. You can get that at a High Street pharmacy, so you don’t even need to go to the doctors. If you’re not sure if you’re eligible, you can pay for it at a High Street pharmacy.”Dumfries and Galloway is currently awaiting information from Health Protection Scotland about the national picture, and how the region compares with others as it deals with the seasonal outbreak.However, Elaine suggests Dumfries and Galloway may simply have been one of the first places in Scotland to be hit by a virus which is making its way up through the UK.She said: “My sense is that it’s crept up from England, so I think it’s going to be a ‘temperature’ which is going to rise all over Scotland.”Media attention has focussed on the so-called ‘Aussie Flu’, but this is in fact a standard strain which historically is also commonplace Scotland.Elaine said: “The ‘Aussie Flu’, H3 N2, is the same strain that was circulating last year and is not unusual. These viruses spread very easily when groups of people congregate, as they do over the festive season. This year we have seen a large number of community cases of flu A and B admitted to hospital, including the strain H3 N2.”Explaining that vaccination introduces people to a dead form of the virus in order to help develop immunity from strains including H3 N2, Elaine Ross said: “If people are vaccinated, you’ve got a good chance of being vaccinated against the Aussie Flu.”And in Dumfries and Galloway, the move to single bed patient rooms with the new £213 million Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary is being credited in part with helping to prevent the spread of flu – with the Infection Control Team explaining that to date not a single case of flu has been transferred from one patient to another.However, Elaine said: “If you’re suffering from the flu, please don’t come into hospital to visit or go and visit your granny if she’s at home and poorly.”For further advice on flu and dealing with its symptoms, a great first point of call is your local pharmacist.And that support is available over the weekend, including Sundays, with Boots High Street, Dumfries, open every Sunday from 12 noon to 4 pm, and as part of a six month pilot rota project in Wigtownshire, this Sunday Creebridge Mill pharmacy is open in Newton Stewart.last_img read more
