The chances of the missing Argentinian submarine being found with any of its 44 crew members alive are fading fast, according to an Australian defence expert.
 
The ARA San Juan has been missing for five days in rough seas after disappearing 430 kilometers off Patagonia on the country’s south-east coast.
 
Rescue aircraft and vessels are ramping up the search for the sub after a series of attempted distress calls yesterday raised hopes they may be alive, with an electrical problem affecting communications.
 
But naval analyst James Goldrick, a former senior officer and leader of the Australian Defence Force Academy, said that it was highly unlikely they had survived after so long.
 
“Every hour, the likelihood of their being found alive diminishes,” said the rear admiral, who commanded two ships and led Australia’s Border Protection Command during his career.
 
“I don’t hold up much hope of their being found.
 
“It would be fantastic if it turns out it was just communications, but after this amount of time, I don’t believe it will.
 
“You’d be fearing the worst by now.”
