 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
Pat L Adams was aboard the USS Indianapolis little over a month when it was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine off the coast of the Phillipines. Of the 1,196 aboard, about 900 made it into the water in the twelve minutes before she sank. Few life rafts were released. Most survivors wore the standard kapok life jacket. Due to her top secret mission, she was not reported missing. Shark attacks began with sunrise of the first day, and continued for five days until the men were finally spotted in the water and rescued. Only 316 men survived.
