An intelligence report has claimed that 55 Chinese sailors died after a nuclear submarine got trapped in a net laid by the United Kingdom for sub-surface vessels. daily Mail Tuesday
The UK report said: “Intelligence reports that an accident occurred on board the ship while carrying out a mission in the Yellow Sea on 21 August.”
The report said everyone on board died due to poisoning of the submarine’s oxygen crew while underwater.
According to reports, China has denied any such incident.
It further reads: “The accident occurred at 08.12, resulting in the death of 55 crew members: 22 officers, 7 officer cadets, 9 petty officers, 17 sailors. The dead include Captain Colonel Zou Yong-peng. Our understanding “The cause of death is hypoxia due to a system malfunction on the submarine. The submarine collided with a chain and anchor barrier used by the Chinese Navy to trap American and allied submarines.”
“This resulted in a system failure, which took six hours to repair and bring the ship to the surface. The onboard oxygen system poisoned the crew after a catastrophic failure,” the report said.
The UK report, which is based on defense intelligence, is highly classified.
A British submariner offered this explanation: “It is plausible that this happened and I suspect that the Chinese would have sought international support for obvious reasons.”
“If they were caught in the net system and the submarine’s batteries were running low [plausible] “So eventually the air purifiers and air treatment systems could fail.”
“Which would have backed up into the secondary systems and subsequently and possibly failed to retain air. Which led to asphyxiation or poisoning.”
“In such a situation, we have a kit that absorbs CO2 and produces oxygen. It is possible that other countries do not have such technology.”
Similar Chinese submarines are 351 feet long and are armed with torpedoes.
