HONOLULU - Navy officials say an attempt to pull free a 9,600-ton warship that ran aground off the coast of Honolulu has been unsuccessful.
The Pacific Fleet says Navy tugboats and the salvage ship USS Salvor tried to tow the USS Port Royal at high tide early Saturday but the ship remained stuck.
Navy spokeswoman Agnes T. Tauyan in Honolulu said the Navy plans to try again after removing fuel and water to lighten the $1 billion vessel.
The 9,600-ton guided missile cruiser ran aground Thursday night on sandy, rocky bottom.
The cause of the grounding and the extent of the damage to the ship remain under investigation.
