When a deep sea voyager crashes, two men must make tough decisions in order to conserve oxygen long enough for help to arrive.
Synopsis/Details: 

The story is about a small sea exploration sub that has crashed, trapping it's crew. They have no mobility and their oxygen is quickly depleting. They manage to fix communication with the surface only to find out that help will not reach them before their oxygen runs out. One of the men decides to kill the other in an effort to keep enough oxygen for himself to survive until rescue.

However during the assault he damages the equipment that is needed to open the rescue hatch. To his surprise help arrives so quickly that it would have saved both men, but there is no way to open hatch because of his murderous attempt. This forces the murderer to helplessly watch as the oxygen finally runs out despite help being only a meter away.
