JAKARTA (Reuters) – Indonesian searchers found debris believed to be of the missing submarine that went missing in Bali sea on Wednesday, the country’s military chief said on Saturday.
Hope for the 53 crew members is dwindling, with officials saying their oxygen supplies are expected to end as soon as Saturday.
Indonesia’s chief of staff said a scan detected the submarine at an altitude of 850 meters (2,788 feet), well beyond its survivability limit. The submarine disappeared as it was about to conduct a torpedo exercise, designed to withstand depths of up to 500 meters (1,640 ft).
