AT SEA - FEBRUARY 26: In this handout provided by the U.S. Navy, sailors from Mobile Diving and Salvage Unit (MDSU) 1 and salvage crew members assigned to the U.S. Navy contracted vessel M/V Jascon 25 salvage a radio antenna from the mine countermeasures ship USS Guardian February 26, 2013 in the Sulu Sea. Guardian ran aground on the Tubbataha Reef January 17. Unsafe sea conditions have not allowed boarding of the ship by rigid-hull inflatable boats. The U.S. Navy and contracted salvage teams have continued damage assessments and the removal of equipment and parts to prepare the grounded ship to be safely dismantled and removed from Tubbataha Reef. The U.S. Navy has continued to work in close cooperation with the Philippine authorities to safely dismantle Guardian from the reef while minimizing environmental effects.
