Indonesia: Scan detects missing submarine as debris is found by search teams (Video)
Indonesian officials say debris from a missing submarine was found after the vessel sank as hopes of rescuing 53 sailors on board faded on Saturday.
The items located included a bottle of lubricant and a device that protects a torpedo, Air Marshall Hadi Tjahjanto said.
The submarine – one of five in Indonesia’s fleet – disappeared on Wednesday during live torpedo training exercises off the Indonesian holiday island of Bali.
A scan had detected the submarine at 850 metres (2,788 feet), well beyond its survivable limits. The submarine is designed to withstand a depth of up to 500 metres (1,640 feet).
