Rescue of survivors of the sinking of the US Navy submarine O5. The submarine sank near the entrance to the Panama Canal after a collision with a steamship. Three of the five man crew drowned in the accident, but after 31 hours the vessel was raised from the sea bed by the crane barge Ajax. The remaining two crewmen were saved having taking refuge in the torpedo room which had not flooded.
