Lifting the bathyscaphe for divers

Via RIA Novosti:

MOSCOW, August 6 (RIA Novosti) - Rescuers are trying to lift the stricken submersible to the depth of 30-50 meters to let divers work, Russian Navy Deputy Commander-in-chief Igor Dygalo said.
"An MB-105 sea tug and a KIL-168 vessel have brought a loop under the bottom of the construction holding the AS-28 deep-sea vessel," he said. "Tows will lift the construction to 50-30 meters to let divers work."

They've reached and untangled the sub. All is okay. Take care.

It would seem that they are stuck on both a cable(s) and a fishing net. Question for the people that have done this for a living, but which would you normally cut first the cables or the fishing net?
