Russian Sub Surfaces

8-6-05 - A Russian navy spokesman says a mini-submarine that had been trapped for nearly three days under the Pacific Ocean has surfaced. The A-S-28 made an emergency surfacing and appeared on the water Sunday morning.

Naval workers are in the process of bringing the mini-sub alongside a ship and are preparing to open the vessel.

The condition of the vessel's seven-member crew is not yet known, though naval officials had been in regular contact with the crew, which was facing dwindling oxygen and chilly temperatures.
