USS Guardian @ Tubbataha Reef

What happened? What went wrong? What happened to US Navy minesweeper, the USS Guardian, and it ran aground the Tubbataha Reef, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, in the Sulu Sea of the Philippines on Thursday? It has been reported that the USS Guardian had come from a port call in Subic Bay and was on its way to Indonesia when the accident took place. At least 10 meters of the coral reef have been damaged. OMG! The US Navy blamed a faulty navigation chart data that may have misplaced the location of Tubbataha Reef for the grounding.

It is kind of confusing for a certain US ship to be involved in such kind of accident knowing the caliber of their equipment and technology and now they are blaming such for the accident. With regard to this sad news, all I want is for them to work out on the damages at Tubbataha Reef to restore and preserve again the said precious heritage site.
