Salvage crews are working to lift a stranded U.S. Navy ship off a protected coral reef in the Philippines.

The USS Guardian struck the reef earlier this month while sailing in a national park.

Philippine authorities are still trying to evaluate damage to the reef, which has been designated as a world heritage site.              

Crews say they're just waiting for approval from the U.S. Navy to move it.

No one was hurt.
