USS Guardian now taking on water after getting stuck on reef

The USS Guardian has started taking on water after getting stuck on a reef in the Philippines.

Navy officials say the ship will have to be lifted off the rocks. It’s an operation that could take another week or two.

About 15,000 gallons of fuel also need to be siphoned off the Guardian.
