Trapped Russian mini-sub, crew rescued in Pacific

By Oliver Bullough

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Rescuers cut free a Russian mini-submarine ensnared in deep-sea cables on Sunday, saving its seven crew with British help, after a three-day ordeal at the bottom of the Pacific with dwindling oxygen.

"The operation is finished. At 7:17 a.m., the submarine broke the surface. The crew opened the hatch on their own," Rear Admiral Vladimir Pepelyaev said on state television.

He said the seamen were put on a rescue ship to be taken to hospital in the far eastern Pacific port of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky for further observation.

"By our information, the doctors have said their condition is satisfactory. They have not needed any particular treatment," he said.

A happy ending!

It is truly fantastic!! As an American I am proud of the work we have done on this mission and to see this multi-national effort effect this great save is the way it should be! Also, I am personally joyus for the people of the UK, as the British Scorpio Craft took care of Biz, along w/ U.S. divers and finished the job of saving lives. With all the tradgedy in the UK in the last few weeks, this sort of thing really kicks up ones national pride.
Job well done all around!

I agree Barknee. This time the Russians were smart and called for help. Kudos to the brave men and women who saved the 7 sailors lives.
