In this Jan. 22, 2013 photo released by the Philippine Coast Guard, a coast guard diver checks the condition underwater of the USS Guardian, a US Navy minesweeper, after it ran aground last week off Tubbataha Reef, a World Heritage Site in the Sulu Sea, 640 kilometers (400 miles) southwest of Manila, Philippines. A U.S. Navy minesweeper that ran aground on a Philippine reef has been punctured and taking in water and will have to lifted off the rocks, a Navy official said Thursday.
