The Indonesian Navy has released the last video of its submarine KRI Nangla 402 submerged in the sea a few days ago. In this heart-touching video, the submarine is seen singing the song Naval Farewell in the submarine. The video was shot a few weeks before the accident, in which naval Indonesians are singing a hit Indonesian song called Sampai Jampa.
Submarine sunk during torpedo drill on Wednesday
KRI Nangla, an Indonesian navy submarine, disappeared into the sea near Bali during a torpedo drill before a maneuver last Wednesday. After four days of research, on Sunday, the Navy confirmed the sinking of the submarine and reported the deaths of all 53 marines. The Navy had said that they had found three pieces of a submarine on the surface of the sea. The cause of the sinking of the submarine has not yet been ascertained.
Commander singing Farewell song with crew
In the viral video, submarine commander Harry Octavian is seen playing guitar with his crew members. His song lyrics were “Even though I’m not ready to be missing you, I’m not ready to live without you. I wish all the best for you,”.
That’s why the navy sang this song
Indonesian Navy spokesman Dijvara Vihenbo said that the KRI Nangla marines recorded the song to bid farewell to the commander of the Navy Submarine Corps. What he knew was that this would become the last song for him. Meanwhile, the Navy has launched a special operation to evacuate the bodies of its marines from a submerged submarine.
800 meters deep submerged in water
This submarine is submerged at a depth of 800 meters. In such a situation, special resources are required to reach and rescue there. The DSRVs used in the rescue work of submarines are also able to function well from 700 to 750 meters in depth. Therefore, with the help of special equipment, the cause of the evacuation of the naval bodies and the sinking of the submarine are being investigated.
Indonesia told all crew members the best patriot
President Joko Widodo has announced government assistance by calling the crew members of the submarine submerged as the best patriots. It also includes financial assistance for the education of the children of the navy. The Indonesian government is also planning to honor the families of all the martyred marines. The families of these marines gathered on the seashore in Bali to pay tribute to the martyrs.
