Coast Guard Dude Surfs a Narco-Sub Packed With Cocaine

The U.S. Coast Guard raided a submarine speeding through the eastern Pacific Ocean moving more than 17,000 pounds of cocaine — and released a video Thursday to prove it.
On June 18, a Coast Guard surveillance aircraft tracked the drug-filled narco-sub hundreds of miles off the Colombian and Ecuadoran coastline watched by the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Munro.
The video shows a member of the Coast Guard riding on top of the speeding sub, pounding on the hatch and demanded it come to a stop. Then, three other guardsmen jumped ship and boarded the 40-foot sub while one pounded on the hatch with his fist.
The video ends with a presumed trafficker emerging from the narco-sub, putting his hands up in surrender. Five alleged smugglers were seized aboard the vessel, and were handed over for prosecution by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.
