Johnson-Sea-Link submersible pilot Tim Askew, Jr. and engineer Lee Frey: "So it's actually lying in the crack, the head is down in the crack. I'm going to have to get leverage on it down lower and use the sub to stand it back up over here. Hmmm. I'm going to have to get it from the other side. OK. Yeah, I'm as far out as I can go. That's not so bad! Oh, there goes the battery." Video footage courtesy of Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute.
