Second rescue attempt for Aussie submarine rescue vessel

Second rescue attempt announced for submarine rescue vessel

The Defence Department has confirmed a second attempt will be made to recover the country's only submarine rescue vessel, which sunk off the Western Australian coast late last year.

The Remora sunk off Rottnest Island in December and is 130 metres underwater.

The first attempt to bring the $10 million vessel to the surface failed due to equipment limitations.

However a spokesman from the department has confirmed a second rescue mission will take place in mid April if weather conditions permit.

The cost of the recovery has not been released.
