It was decided to raise it up. The equipment was recovered from the depths for more than eight hours. As soon as he appeared on the surface, it immediately put on a special raft. Camera and sonar picked up on deck. It turned out that a strong steel construction beams were deformed, and 20-inch steel rope, on which it is being lowered,turned out to be half-sawn. Who tried to leave the unit at depth and why – is a complete mystery.. Continue reading
