The Hunt for the Candystriped October

A Russian mini-submarine carrying seven sailors snagged on a fishing net and was stuck 625 feet down on the Pacific floor Friday, and the United States and Britain were rushing unmanned vehicles there to help in rescue efforts. Link.
Eternal Father, strong to save,
Whose arm hath bound the restless wave,
Who bidd'st the mighty ocean deep
Its own appointed limits keep;
Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee,
For those in peril on the sea!

Update: I changed the title of the post, please let me know if it is in bad taste. I changed it once I heard that Russian naval craft successfully snagged the AS-28 and are towing it to shallow water.
