Watch dramatic footage of Coast Guard capturing mini-submarine suspected of drug smuggling
The U.S. Coast Guard released video Thursday showing its Cutter Munro crew members boarding a self-propelled mini-submarine suspected of smuggling drugs off the Pacific Ocean. Called “a self-propelled semi-submersible,” the vessel was stopped in international waters on June 19, 2019. In the footage, a crew member yells “Stop your boat! Now!” in Spanish before leaping onto the mini-sub and opening the hatch to find people inside the hull.
