The Crew of the Missing Submarine may be Alive

Rene Humberto Vilte was a confirmed crew member on the ARA San Juan which vanished last Wednesday
That has led some family members of the crew - who had been gathered at the naval base awaiting news of the search - to give up hope of a rescue.
Aircraft from Argentina, Britain, and the United States for several days have crisscrossed the South Atlantic in search of the San Juan submarine with 44 crewmembers aboard, and a Russian Antonov transport plane has now brought equipment to aid the effort hampered by rough seas.
But many relatives of the crew have lost hope since the navy announced Thursday that there had been an explosion on board the submarine, which experts said was likely linked to a problem with its batteries and would likely have been catastrophic. It has not been seen since and there are fears the 44-member crew has perished after a possible explosion.
"I'm here to guarantee you that we will carry on with the search, especially now that we have the support of all the global community".
The spokesman said they were continuing the search for the submarine, involving 13 countries with dozens of ships and planes.
Local residents prayed for the crew's return during a religious ceremony outside the base on Friday.
"I asked them if they were all dead, and he said: "Yes".
Argentine President, Mauricio Macri, promises the relatives of the submariners that an inquiry will be held into the disappearance of a navy submarine and that they will "know the truth" of what happened.
'They killed my brother!' a man leaving the base in a auto shouted to reporters. The older man driving the auto was crying.
"This demands a serious, deep investigation", Mr Macri said. "The submarine doesn't sail if that's not done".
The U.S. Navy's Undersea Rescue Command sent a ship from Chubut's port Comodoro Rivadavia on Sunday, outfitted with a remotely operated mini-sub to be used as a rescue vehicle if the San Juan is found. The submarine originally went into service in 1985.
