Nuclear sub runs aground in Pacific
Saturday, January 8, 2005 Posted: 1036 GMT (1836 HKT)



The USS San Francisco, pictured in this file photo, ran aground south of Guam.


(CNN) -- U.S. Coast Guard and military aircraft Saturday are en route to the western Pacific, where a nuclear attack submarine ran aground, wounding several crew members -- including at least one critically -- according to the U.S. Pacific Fleet.

The USS San Francisco ran aground some 350 miles south of Guam -- the nearest land mass -- while it was conducting submerged operations. It has since resurfaced and is heading back to Guam, according to the USPF's news release.

"At this point there does not seem to be damage to the (nuclear) reactor," Lt. j.g. Adam Clampitt told CNN, from his base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.

The accident happened Saturday at noon, Guam time (Friday 9 p.m. ET, 4 p.m. Hawaii time).

3. Every time Chimpy steals a presidentiary, there's a sub accident.
Straight up.

4. This sure doesn't sound like very responsible sailors.
Were they letting a big donor, a civilian operate this lethal weapon? Wonder what the real story is?
