Submarine Caught in Fish Net

A Swedish fishing boat had an unusual catch recently: a Swedish navy submarine.

“Things like this can’t be allowed to happen”, Commander Jonas Haggren, commanding officer of the First Submarine Flotilla, told the newspaper “Blekinge Läns Tidning”.

The submarine HMS Östergötland was travelling between two exercises areas when it got caught in the fishing net. According to Commander Haggren, the incident was entirely the fault of the submarine.
