U.S. Navy Crew Will Attempt to Free Russian Sub

The U.S. Navy is flying unmanned robotic vehicles to Russia's Pacific Coast, in an effort to rescue the crew of a Russian mini-sub snagged in fishing net along the ocean bottom. About 30 Navy crewmembers from San Diego will use two remotely operated vehicles in an attempt to free the sub and its seven-member crew.
