Russian Submarine Accident: Russian Authorities Request Help from Britain

Aired August 16, 2000 - 7:58 a.m. ET

THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.

LEON HARRIS, CNN ANCHOR: We want to update you now on the latest word that we're getting now on the fate of that sub that is trapped on the bottom of the Barents Sea. CNN has just confirmed that the Russian authorities have requested help from Britain.

We understand that British authorities have been speaking with Russian authorities about sending some help and help is now on the way. The big question is whether or not any help that arrives on the scene in the Barents is going to be enough.

The word we've also gotten this morning is that there is no sign of life currently being seen or heard aboard that submarine, the Kursk.

Of course, we will have more on that for you this morning as it develops.
