Super Scorpio begins decent

Thanks to The Sub Report for passing along this update:
Rescue crews began lowering a British remote-controlled underwater vehicle to a Russian mini-submarine trapped deep under the Pacific Ocean on Sunday, hoping to reach seven trapped crewmen before their air supply ran out, a Russian spokesman said.

Capt. Igor Dygalo, a navy spokesman, told The Associated Press that workers began lowering the Super Scorpio at around 11:30 a.m. local time at the site in Beryozovaya Bay about 10 miles off the east coast of the peninsula, north of Japan.
