PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, Russia (AP) – Russian crews looped cables under an underwater antenna snaring a mini-submarine on the Pacific floor Saturday and would try to lift them closer to the surface before air ran out for seven trapped sailors, a navy spokesman said.
Capt. Igor Dygalo described the rescue effort as U.S. and British crews with robotic undersea vehicles raced to reach the site of the accident off the remote Kamchatka Peninsula in the Russian Far East.
Authorities could not say exactly how much air remained on the mini-sub, which was some 625 feet below the surface, but an admiral said Saturday the supply should last until the end of the rescue.

Gotta love Russian Naval Admiralty humor.
That’s as good as Ron White’s stand-up bit where the guy on his plane asks him how far the plane can make it on one engine and Ron White tells him, “All the way to the scene of the crash!”
