In 1927, USS S-4 (SS-109) was lost in a collision with the Coast Guard cutter USS Paulding. The first divers to reach the submarine at 102 fsw were able to make contact with the men trapped inside, but were unable to rescue them due to a hose connection that was feasible in theory but in reality could not provide the men in the submarine with oxygen. The incident, along with other submarine accidents, sparked new interest in diving operations. The Naval School, Diving and Salvage, was re-established at the Washington Navy Yard during that year, and a rescue chamber that was essentially a diving bell with special fittings for connection to a submarine deck hatch was developed. The apparatus, called the McCann-Erickson Rescue Chamber, was proven somewhat effective in 1939 when it was used to rescue the crew of USS Squalus (SS-192) that suffered a catastrophic valve failure off the Isle of Shoals.

Charles "Swede" Momsen stands next to the rail (third from left) as Falcon (ASR-2) crewmen suit-up two deep sea divers during the rescue/salvage operation following the sinking of the U.S. Navy submarine Squalus (SS-192). Momsen led the successful effort, which resulted in the rescue of 33 submariners trapped aboard Squalus and remains to this day the greatest undersea rescue in history.

A snap hook is attached to Tuffy's harness which enables him to carry messages and tools to the divers. The experiments with Tuffy during SEALAB II was a project of the U.S. Naval Missile Test Center, Point Mugu, California. Copyright owner: National Archives. Catalog#: USN 1112610.
