A US Navy plane may have located the position of the Argentine Navy submarine ARA San Juan which has been missing since last Wednesday. Sensors aboard the plane detected a ‘heat stain’ at 230 ft below the surface, roughly 185 miles off the east coast of Argentina. A rescue vessel involved in the search also picked up a sonar signal late Tuesday night.
Time is running out for the 44 crew members on the submarine, which reportedly has a seven day supply of oxygen. If the submarine sank or was disabled a week ago, the oxygen supply could be very close to being exhausted.
