7 USMC Marines and a US Navy sailor presumed dead after their amphibious assault vehicle began taking on water and sank. Eight Marines were pulled from the water. The rest stayed under it seems.

Scary as hell. Imagine being stuck inside one of those amphib tanks in a couple of hundred feet of water as it sinks. RIP brothers.

 
Pretty grim knowing you don't stand a chance

Only 5 days late. ;)

Joking aside. I hope the bodies can be retrieved eventually by some means as its too deep for divers.

Seriously doubt it, the fact some made it out means the rooftop troop hatches were opened and any watertight integrity gone, those bodies may be still inside and some may wash out before the crabs get them
