Missing Argentina Submarine Carried More than its Capacity

The crew of the missing Argentina's San Juan submarine might still manage to survive even though the search for the vessel has been continuing for many days, Argentinian Navy spokesman Enrique Balbi said on Sunday.

The submarine was sailing from the extreme southern port of Ushuaia to the coastal city of Mar del Plata.

Argentina's navy insisted the ARA San Juan submarine was in good condition before it set off on its mission.

Reports of a sound detected underwater near the last known position of the vessel suggest it might have imploded after reporting an electrical problem.

Relatives of crew members focused on the possibility that the submarine may have been able to rise high enough in the ocean to refill its oxygen tanks at some point after its disappearance.

A sudden, violent sound detected underwater near the last known position of the 65-meter-long (213 feet) diesel-electric submarine suggested it might have imploded on the morning of November 15th, after reporting an electrical problem and being ordered back to base. "We will not speculate beyond the facts as we know them".

Depths plummet from 200 meters (650 feet) to more than 3,000 meters on the edge of the Argentine shelf.

An worldwide search effort has so far failed to trace the ARA San Juan which disappeared in the South Atlantic Ocean on November 15.

Other crew family members were less sure.

"The problem with being the loved one of someone who is missing is that the mourning process can not start, because they are still out there somewhere", local psychologist Guillermo Bruchstein said in a Saturday television interview.

"I asked them if they were all dead, and he said: "Yes". Among them were two combat swimmers from Argentine Navy's Buzos Tácticos and an official from the Navy Intelligence Service, whose wife leaked the information.

Opposition politicians blamed the loss on a reduction in funding for the armed forces, whose budget has declined since the fall of a military dictatorship in the 1980s. The banner reads "ARA San Juan, be strong".
