Kuala Lumpur: I was watching the Discovery Channel tonight and found an interesting documentary entitled International Submarine Rescue AS-28. The documentray chronicled the rescue of the AS-28, a Russian mini-sub in the waters off Kamchatka.
When the Russian sub went down, those who were eventually involved in the rescue had been contacted by ISMERLO.
I am not praying for our subs to go down but everyone knows such to have our own rescue is prohibitively expensive and ISMERLO give us the opportunity to conduct such a rescue.

The Seven Russian sailors trapped for three days on the ocean floor in a small submarine off Russia’s Pacific coast were rescued alive and well Aug. 7 after a team effort by British, Russian and US forces deployed a British ROV to cut the vessel free of nets. Additional forces from Japan and the Shell Oil operated DSND Surveyor were racing to the site to support the rescue. (AP Photo/Tatyana Makeyeva, Pool)If you like this post, buy me an espresso.
