The crew of a British nuclear
submarine nearly boiled to death after
its air conditioning system became
clogged up – by crabs and barnacles, it
emerged yesterday. HMS Turbulent
was on a secret mission in the Indian
Ocean when the cooling systems
suddenly packed up.
Crew members started collapsing at
their controls as temperatures on
board rocketed to 60C (140F). Eight
became seriously ill and a further 18
were suffering from heat stroke with
no prospect of getting to land for help.
The only way to get air was to surface
and open the hatches but when the
casualties were taken out on deck
they faced sweltering exterior
temperatures of 42C.
Faced with a "catastrophic" loss of life
commanding officer Ryan Ramsey
decided the only way to save his 130-
strong crew was to dive as quickly as
possible.
His plan worked and the 5,000-tonne
Trafalgar Class sub began cooling
down in the deeper and colder water.
