The last victim of a fire in a California submersible is found



"Conception Incident's Unified Command makes it easier to report that today's search and recovery efforts have been successful in locating the last missing victim," a tweet from the sheriff's office said.

DNA tests are performed to confirm the identity of seven of the 34 victims found.

The 75-foot submersible sank on Labor Day off the Southern California coast after a fire cost 34 people the lives of people aboard.

Of the 39 people on board this weekend, only five were found alive. The others in the lower sleeping deck were probably locked in as the fire blocked their escape.

  The cause of the fire of a California submersible is still unknown.
Investigators have failed to determine the cause of the fire aboard the submersible, a police officer familiar with the investigation said earlier this week that the boat had not even been brought to the surface.

"The boat was not lifted out of the boat the water was still, but the salvage teams were successful in the preparations to do so," Lt. Erik Raney from the Sheriff's Office of Santa Barbara County opposite CNN.

The weather conditions have prevented efforts to dive the boat.

The Coast Guard said Wednesday it had summoned a formal four-member Marine Inquiry to investigate the loss of the small passenger ship.
