Dead embody the captain Colonel Xue Yong-Peng.,” learn the excepts of the UK report. 

What led to the catastrophic deaths?

The report underscored that the deaths had been attributable to hypoxia– a state wherein oxygen is just not accessible in ample quantities on the tissue stage to keep up sufficient homeostasis.

“The submarine hit a chain and anchor obstacle used by the Chinese Navy to trap US and allied submarines. This resulted in system failures that took six hours to repair and surface the vessel. The onboard oxygen system poisoned the crew after a catastrophic failure,” added the report.

‘Which would have reverted to secondary methods and subsequently and plausibly failed to keep up the air. Which led to asphyxia or poisoning. ‘We have a equipment which absorbs CO2 and generates oxygen in such a state of affairs. It is possible that different nations should not have this sort of tech,” added the officer.

However, it added that “It is plausible that this occurred and I doubt the Chinese would have asked for international support for obvious reasons.”

‘If they had been trapped on the web system and the submarine’s batteries had been operating flat (believable) then finally the air purifiers and air therapy methods might have failed.
