Indonesia submarine: Sailors aboard missing vessel only have 24 hours of oxygen left
Indonesia’s navy has been searching for a vessel which is carrying 53 sailors. The submarine went missing during a training exercise in waters north of the island of Bali.
The sailors were conducting a torpedo drill on Wednesday but failed to send the expected results.
Yudo Margono, the navy chief of staff, warned that the crew on board only have enough oxygen to last until 3am on Saturday.
He told reporters: “The submarine’s oxygen reserve capacity in a blackout is 72 hours.
“There’s time until Saturday around 3am. Let’s hope we can find them before then.”
