#AceWorldNews says that two Indian navy sailors were missing and seven others hospitalized Wednesday after being overcome by smoke on board a diesel-powered submarine, AP reported.

The sailors were overcome by the smoke during a `fire-fighting’ exercise off Mumbai’s coast, according to Captain DK Sharma, a navy spokesman.

A naval helicopter took seven of the sailors to a navy hospital in Mumbai, but two others were unaccounted for.

The submarine did not suffer any damage and was heading back to the Mumbai dockyard.
