134.2.1 Figure 2-18.-Damage to the main engine room of the USS Samuel B. Roberts. entered  the  main  engine  room  and  stepped  into ankle-deep water. The CO checked that space and then  headed  for  AMR2,  where  the  key  problem was   the   rising   water.   Seawater   was   close   to reaching    the    fire    pumps    and    was    already splashing  on  the  diesels.  Despite  the  desperate situation in the engineering spaces, the CO felt a tremendous sense of confidence as he watched his men  work.  Chief  Ford’s  team  was  confident  too. “We  can  win  this  one,  captain,”  one  sailor  said. “We can do it,” another echoed. As he surveyed the situation,  he  made  the  decision  that  they  were going   to   save   the   ship.   At   the   hatchway   the captain  looked  back  and  said,  "I’ll  see  you  again. I’ll be back." The captain recalled the lessons learned about putting water inside the skin of the ship from the Stark incident. As the fire fighters put water down the  stack,  it  flowed  into  the  ship.  He  realized, We’re sinking ourselves! From the triage area on the 02  level,  Doc  had moved  all  his  patients  aft  to  the  hangar  bay  for evacuation.   When   BMSN   Gibson   left   the   bow immediately after the explosion, he didn’t get the chance to break out much fire hose. The pain from his  back  injury  had  quickly  stopped  him  in  his tracks—now he was pinned to a stretcher. The  worst  case  so  far  was  the  EOOW,  Chief Perez.  He  had  serious  injuries  to  his  head  and back. Having been trapped under the deck grating in the main engine room after the mine exploded, Perez  had  a  close  brush  with  death.  Shipmates worked  feverishly  to  rescue  him.  He  escaped  by swimming  under  oily  water  for  15  feet  through mangled   equipment   to   where   a   crewman   was shining  a  battle  lantern  into  the  water  to  show him the way. 2-27
