“The crew of the Angel Flame received orders to head out.”
Five men, two pilots, two divers, and the captain, pack into the DSRV (Deep Submergence Rescue Vehicle) in search for valuable wreckage, bodies, and, God-willing, survivors. The cruise liner rested at the bottom of the ocean, one half upside-down, the other awkwardly on its side.
The pilots and captain waited as the divers surveyed the wreckage. The light from the submarine hardly did anything to light up the dark abyss, and the divers struggled to search efficiently. They returned empty-handed.
As they returned to the surface, the crew of the Angel Flame swore they saw wisps of light hovering around and past their sub. The souls of the drowned followed their angels’ flame back to the top.
The support ship on the surface above didn’t see any abnormal lights from their view. However, just seconds after the submarine surfaced, a hundred dead bodies emerged on the surface of the water surrounding the Angel Flame.
