2 sailors left ‘San Juan’ sub days before it went missing – Argentine Navy

Two crew members left the ARA ‘San Juan’ days before the Argentine Navy’s submarine disappeared off the radar in the South Atlantic, spokesman Enrique Balbi said Saturday as cited by media. “45 people boarded the submarine in Mar-del-Plata, but one left in Ushuaia for personal reasons, because of his mother’s illness,” Balbi said, adding that another sailor was replaced after leaving in Ushuaia. A total of 44 crew members have been missing since November 15, as the search operation continues.
