What happened to the Indonesian sub marine carrying 53 people?



Reports say the Indonesian navy is currently in search of a submarine that went missing off north the resort Island of Bali on Wednesday.

The report says at least 53 people were on board the submarine ship before it went missing.

Speaking on the missing vessels, Military chief Hadi Tjahjanto said the KRI Nanggala 402 was participating in a training exercise when it missed a scheduled reporting call.

The submarine is believed to have disappeared in waters about 60 miles north of Bali, he said.

Tjahjanto said the navy has deployed scores of ships to search the area, including a hydrographic survey ship, and has asked for help from Singapore and Australia, which have submarine rescue vessels.

Sources from the country said they think the vessel sank into a trough at a depth of 2,300 feet.

Statement coming from the Defense Ministry said they lost contact with the ship after it was granted clearance to dive. It said a helicopter later spotted an oil spill near the dive’s starting position.
