    Time and oxygen running out for Argentine missing submarine in the South Atlantic

    “The most critical situation would be that we are in the sixth day of oxygen,” the navy's spokesman, Capt. Enrique Balbi, “Obviously that is worrisome”

    Ships and planes combed a wider area of the stormy South Atlantic on Tuesday in a fruitless hunt for signs of a missing Argentine submarine, adding to growing concerns about the vessel not heard from in six days. Argentine navy officials have worried that if the ARA San Juan was intact but disabled underwater, its crew of 44 might have only enough oxygen to last seven days.
