Flaw in the story.

USS Thatch takes 12 hours to sink after being hit by missles, bombs and torpedos during a live fire exercise.

The problem with the story is that the ship was unmanned:  all of the fuel, oil and munitions were removed from the ship.  Warships have survived over the years until the fuel, oil or munitions have been detonated.  Then they sink within minutes.
