Largest in the world private submarine sank in Oresund, Denmark

Largest in the world private submarine sank in Oresund, Denmark

The submarine is lying in seven feet of water but divers have not been able to enter it safely yet, police said. The navy says that the 40-ton, almost 18-meter-long (60-foot-long) submarine with at least two people on board had been "found sailing" south of Copenhagen.

Danish authorities announced early Friday they were looking for the Nautilus sub, reported to have gone missing the night before in Oresund straight between Denmark and Sweden.

The submarine is considered to be the largest private submarine in the world and was built by Madsen in 2008 after he launched a crowdfunding campaign.

The submarine sunk Friday after its owner, Peter Madsen, was rescued by a private boat but there was no trace of the woman.

Mr Madsen escaped the sinking submarine on a private boat and told Denmark's TV2 channel there had been a problem with a ballast tank.

Madsen said "a minor problem with a ballast tank" - a compartment that holds water to provide stability - "turned into a major issue" that ultimately caused the vessel to sink.

"I am fine, but sad because Nautilus went down", he told TV2. "But I guess that was pretty good because otherwise I still would have been down there".

Mr Madsen is also said to be working on designing a spaceship, according to a profile on TedxVilnius that describes him as "an explorer, who excels in making fantastic dreams come true".

The journalist, who has not been named, had been writing about Mr Madsen and the submarine, according to Danish and Swedish media. "They were the only two on board yesterday".

Two helicopters and three ships combed the sea from Copenhagen to the Baltic Sea island of Bornholm after police learned just after 3:30 a.m.

The navy initially said the sub was "found sailing" south of Copenhagen. But Damgaard later said the 40 tonne submarine, which is almost 18 metres long, had sunk.
