20 Russian Submariners and Dockies Die

Reports coming in tonight that 20 Russian Submariners and Dock Yard Mateys have been killed in a fire related accident on a boat in a Pacific Dockyard.

May their particular God be with them.

Boat Accident

Sounds like an activation of a halon dump or something similar. It's at these times every submariner in the world thinks "But for the grace of God there go I..."

RIP boys.
The BBC are now reporting that a chemical fire suppressant system was set off with out any fire to suppress. The chemical used is fatal to humans hence a death toll between 20 and 40.

Over 200 people were on board the boat which was undergoing sea trials prior to its delivery to the Indian Navy as Spearfish stated.

May their souls rest in Peace.

Eternal Father, strong to save
Whose arm hath bound the restless wave.
Who bidd'st the mighty ocean deep
Its own appointed limits keep
Oh hear us when we cry to thee
For those in peril on the sea.
On this of all days, rest in peace sailors. Condolences to families, friends and comrades.
