Argentina abandons rescue mission for crew of missing submarine

Argentina abandons rescue mission for crew of missing submarine

The government has pledged a thorough investigation once the search for the ARA San Juan has concluded.

"We will continue the search".

The submarine has been missing for 15 days.Argentine Air Force members during search operations for the missing Argentine submarine ARA San Juan, at sea off the coast of Argentina. The rescuers have allowed for twice the possible time that the crew could have remained alive.

Argentine Navy spokesman Enrique Balbi said: "More than double the number of days have passed where it would have been possible to rescue the crew".

Family members of the crew criticized the navy's decision.

'It's unusually cruel. Every day, it's a new blow.

The navy said that the search and rescue mission had involved 28 ships, nine aircraft, 4,000 people and support from 18 countries.

The search for 44 sailors on board a lost Argentine submarine has ended, leaving nearly no hope for their survival.

A massive global rescue mission had been mounted for the ARA San Juan since it disappeared on November 15 while traveling from the southern port of Ushuaia to its base at Mar del Plata. The captain later communicated by satellite phone that the problem had been contained.

That was the last communication received from the submarine before a loud noise, possibly and implosion, was detected from around the area where it vanished.

The search for the San Juan has employed some of the latest technology in one of the largest efforts of its kind.

Some family members have denounced the navy's response to the sub's disappearance as well as the age and condition of the vessel. "What they are really saying is that they're not going to be looking for it any more".

The submarine was ordered to cut short its mission and return to the naval base in Mar del Plata immediately.

'I stay with this image, ' Jesica Gopar, said in a tweet that included a photo of her husband, submarine officer Fernando Santilli, smiling and holding their young son in his arms. I hope you didn't suffer my love'.
