Missing submarine running low on oxygen
The search for a missing Argentine submarine is in a critical phase as the
crew’s oxygen supply runs low.
ARP San Juan went missing in the South Atlantic on 15 November with 44 crew on board but it only has seven days of oxygen. It was last seen roughly 268 miles off the coast.
Meanwhile experts say the submarine knows it has to surface when it does not have communication with the land for this long.
Navy spokesman Enrique Balbi said the situation was “very dangerous”.
NASA has aided in the search with a P-3 Orion aircraft that was in the area doing research.
