Rust Threatens WWII-Era Submarine

USS Requin, a tourist attraction in Pittsburgh.

A World War II submarine that is a popular tourist attraction in Pittsburgh has rusted below the water level and may need costly repairs, officials said.

The Requin isn’t going to sink but may need as much as $2 million in repairs, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported Saturday.

Requin is docked on the Ohio River, at the Carnegie Science Center. Officials there said there is no danger, and visitors are still welcome.
