Russia rescue personnel return from a dive in a mini submarine to the Kursk on the sea bed in the Barents Sea, Friday, Aug. 18, 2000. The mini submarine was forced for unexplained reasons to surface in emergency mode after this dive. Exhausted Russian rescue workers in mini-submarines finally reached a badly mangled escape hatch on the sunken Russian nuclear submarine Friday, but failed to get into the shattered vessel or find any sign of life.
