Danish Inventor Charged with Murder After Submarine Is Wrecked

On board were Mr Madsen and a Swedish journalist, whose partner had alerted authorities to her absence on Thursday evening, Copenhagen police said in a statement.

Madsen had wanted to launch himself into the space race before building his submarine the Nautilus, the biggest privately-made one ever when he made it in 2008.

Peter Madsen was arrested Friday on preliminary manslaughter charges after his 40-ton, almost 18-meter-long (60-foot-long) submarine sank off Denmark's eastern coast.

Officers did not identify the owner, Peter Madsen, but he appeared on Danish television on Friday to discuss the submarine's sinking.

The Navy said the sub was seen sailing, but then sank shortly afterward.

"It took about 30 seconds for Nautilus to sink, and I couldn't close any hatches or anything", Madsen said. "But I guess that was pretty good, because I otherwise still would have been down there".

A judge is set to decide if the owner of an amateur-built submarine should be held in custody during an investigation into whether he is responsible for the disappearance of a Swedish woman who had been onboard his submarine that sank off Denmark's east coast.

The woman was a journalist writing about Madsen and his submarine, Swedish and Danish media reported.

When asked why he did not respond to radio contact earlier in the day, Madsen told them he had had technical problems, Danish navy spokesman Anders Damgaard told The Associated Press news agency. The navy says that the 40-ton, almost 18-meter-long (60-foot-long) submarine with at least two people on board had been "found sailing" south of Copenhagen.

Madsen told authorities he had dropped the woman off on an island in Copenhagen's harbor a few hours into their Thursday night trip.

A salvage vessel on Saturday raised the submarine, which was seven meters (23 feet) under water off Copenhagen's south island of Dragoer. They were hoping to tow it to port on Saturday and open it then, the statement said.

"The undersea world is close, it's handsome, always just around the corner in Denmark". Eventually a lighthouse in Koge Bay, about 30 kilometers (19 miles) south of Copenhagen, spotted the craft at 10:30 a.m. on Friday.
