    Six Indian technologists have been trapped under water in Persian Gulf in pressurized engineering chamber while they were building an underwater pipeline there. The accident happened when the diving unit's Iranian support ship supplying it with oxygen and having on-board depressurization systems for divers sank and left the Indians without any support surface ship. The Indians oxygen supply is running out and when that happens they might die.

    Very similar to Russian submarine Kursk accident. The poor souls are trapped under sea and can not get out.

    Kursk was a nuclear sub and all submariners on board died. Kursk was raised to the surface later. Here the engineers are trapped in a pressurised chamber. Hope they make it to the surface

    These Indian divers are probably saturated divers. They MUST remain under pressure for a very long time (Several days) in order for their blood to return to normal.

    If there is no other chamber nearby, the only way to rescue them is to bring the breathing apparatus to the chamber underwater. Open the chamber under water and stay under water and under pressure until another chamber is available on the surface.

    If they just open the chamber and come out to the surface, the air in their blood will bubble like opening a Pepsi. They will surely die.


    Submarine is different as they are always under 1 atm.

    New team sent undersea to rescue trapped divers

    Tehran, Oct 21, IRNA -- Managing director of Pars Special Economic Zone said a new rescue team has been sent to save the lives of 6 divers who has been trapped in a diving chamber of a sunk ship in the Persian Gulf.

    Pirooz Moosavi told IRNA on Friday that six divers of the Ship, the Koosha, who are all Indian have been trapped in the diving chamber of the sunk ship which has oxygen for 48 hours 'so we are hopeful that they will be saved'.

    The Vessel, a diving supprt ship, went down some 25 kilometers off Iran's coast on Thursday afternoon. Some 60 people have been rescued so far but 13 people are still missing.

    On the possibility of saving the trapped divers, Moosavi said he does not want to predict anything but he expressed hope that with the experience and expertise that the victims have, 'we hope to save 7 of them'.

    It would be shame if Iran lets politics over human lifes and not have americans involved. We knew the chilean miners rescued by americans. they have the know how...indian govt would also be blamed if they have not forced this issue.

    Goodness! I will pray for these people. Wish they get help soon. Can't imagine the situation their families will be in. Hold on, we're building under-water pipelines but we don't have the technology to recover our folks incase something like this happens? :angry: WTF?!
