Funeral Set for NY Sailor Killed in USS John McCain Accident

Funeral services are set for the upstate New York man who was among the 10 U.S. sailors killed last month when a Navy ship collided with an oil tanker off Singapore.

The Poughkeepsie Journal reports that a public wake for Corey George Ingram is being held from noon to 6 p.m. Monday at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 170 in the town of Poughkeepsie.

The funeral service will be held starting at 11 a.m. Tuesday at the Mid-Hudson Civic Center in the city of Poughkeepsie.

The 28-year-old Ingram was an information systems technician 2nd class aboard the USS John McCain when it collided with a tanker on Aug. 21. Navy divers recovered the victims' remains inside flooded compartments of the ship in the days after the accident.
