Search continues for the missing off the coast of California US Marines

The search continues for the US Marines, whose landing craft sank the day before off the coast of California during a training operation. 8 American servicemen are reported missing.


According to the latest information, the body of one of the Marines was found. Previously, the bodies of two injured and hypothermic were delivered to one of the ships.

The command of the United States Marine Corps reports that there were 16 people on board the landing craft (according to some reports, we are talking about a landing craft). Five were able to return to the warship from which the landing was carried out. According to the commander of the ILC, General David Berger, an investigation into the tragic incident is already underway.

In the US press, meanwhile, they say that the cause of the accident could be the excess of the permissible load on the boat, as well as its technical condition. Now the ILC has begun a large-scale test of the means of landing marines from landing ships into the coastal zone.

Meanwhile, the search team reports that to date, more than 200 square nautical miles of the water area in the area of ​​the incident have been surveyed. Searches have not yet yielded results, they are complicated by difficult weather conditions - high waves. The search operation involved funds aviation, a US Coast Guard and US Navy ship.

        Long stay in water even 27 ° causes fatal hypothermia of the body. Do not forget about sharks, as I understand they are off the coast of California, there may not be all bodies

Survived those who doused themselves with engine oil from head to toe before jumping into the sea. White sharks graze there in California without malice. If they didn’t rescue them right away, they are already looking for bodies, unless of course they were wearing life jackets.

          At 30 degrees water, you can stay for several days.
          There was a case in the 70s, when from a Soviet ship near Thailand
          the tourist escaped by jumping into the water. Due to the currents, he dangled in the water about
          three days (he was a trained swimmer and diver). Survived
          reached the shore.

              Obviously, he was not on duty and not under oath, since he was released on a tour.
              And "flight abroad" as a form of treason to the Motherland prescribed in the Criminal Code is, excuse me, absurd.

                He was engaged in oceanology. Relatives also suffered after his escape. Under the USSR, the state itself exported me abroad. But never the desire to flee arose, probably upbringing and birches are not in Russia, these are not birches. Khrushchev's son was also found with a hole in his head, but He did it himself for a long time. For me, the runners in the USSR are traitors, they betrayed once, they will betray again.

                  I, too, never had a desire to leave, although many "well-wishers", including parents, have composted their brains on this topic. But, damn it, the installation that you were born here, which means you must live here, otherwise you have no right to live at all (as a traitor) - this is wild. And it would be fine if it only concerned the capitalist countries, of course, the Cold War and all that. But even within the socialist camp, where, as it were, peace, friendship and internationalism, you could not move to another country.

      Shark hazard... None of the beaches in California can be considered calm. California has a large population of seals located close to the rocky shores of the Farallon Islands. We remind you that seals are the main food of great white sharks. California's Great White Shark Diaspora is one of the largest in the world. Attacks are not so frequent in Florida, where small individuals attack, but they are much more "effective", because adults "work" here.

      The bottom line: swimming, diving is not only dangerous, but also life threatening. To be in the water only near the shore on fenced and prepared beaches. Do not swim in the open sea. Observe all safety measures as much as possible and do not ignore the warning signs on the beaches.

    The United States Marine Corps announced that the search for seven missing Marines and one sailor has ceased following an incident in southern California. All military personnel are presumed dead.

    “It was with a heavy heart that I made the decision to complete the search and rescue operation,” said the 15th Marine Expeditionary Force commander Christopher Bronzi. "The Marines, sailors and Coast Guard have shown tremendous dedication in the rescue operation."
