Although from Thursday 30 November the Argentine Navy gave by confirmed that no longer looked for survivors, today was fulfilled a month of the last communication of the submarine "ARA San Juan" which could not be found since then.
Thanks to the countries that collaborated in its location.

Eliana Krawczyk (born 1982) was the first female official submariner in the country and the only woman of the 44 crew members of the ARA San Juan submarine, which sank in the ocean on Nov 15, 2017.

"ARA San Juan (S-42) was a TR-1700-class diesel-electric submarine in service with the Submarine Force of the Argentine Navy from 1986 to 2017. It was built in West Germany, entering service on 19 November 1985, and underwent a mid-life update from 2008 to 2013.

On 15 November 2017, San Juan went missing during a routine patrol in the South Atlantic off the coast of Argentina, believed to have suffered an electrical malfunction, and a multi-nation search operation was mounted. Within hours of San Juan's last transmission, an acoustic anomaly consistent with an implosion was detected in the vicinity of the vessel's last known location. On 30 November, the search and rescue operation was abandoned.

The Argentine Navy reported on 16 November 2018 that the wreck of San Juan had been found at a depth of 907 metres (2,976 ft), 460 kilometres (290 mi) southeast of Comodoro Rivadavia. The submarine's imploded wreckage was strewn over an area of 8,000 square metres (86,000 sq ft)."
