Trapped Russian Submarine Crew Rescued

File picture of a Russian Priz mini-submarine.

Fox News just reported word from U.S. Navy officials that the crew of the the Russian Priz submersible – itself a rescue vehicle – that was trapped for nearly three days under the Pacific Ocean have been rescued after a British remote-controlled vehicle (Scorpio) cut away the undersea cables that had snarled it. The seven submariners trapped on the Russian submarine were within hours of exhausting their oxygen supplies. The initial reports are that all seven crew members walked away from the sub, apparently in good health. Each is being examined by U.S. military doctors in the rescue area.
