Jakarta – Indonesian searchers have recovered debris believed to be from the missing submarine lost in the Bali Sea on Wednesday, the country’s military chief said today.
Hopes for the 53 crew are dwindling, with officials saying that their supply of oxygen was expected to have run out early today..
The Indonesian navy chief of staff said a scan had detected the submarine at 850 metres, well beyond its survivable limits. The submarine, which disappeared as it prepared to conduct a torpedo drill, is designed to withstand a depth of up to 500 metres. — Reuters
