Technical experts were being brought in from the East Coast and Europe to help investigate the cause of a crane accident Friday that killed six workers when a steel basket carrying 12 men plunged about 30 feet onto the deck of a Navy ship in San Diego. A vice president of the National Steel & Shipbuilding Co., the company overhauling the ship, said the experts will probably inspect the crane on Tuesday or Wednesday. Four men injured in the incident were still hospitalized.

The commander of the San Diego-based submarine that snared a tugboat in June has been relieved of command because of the fatal accident and two other incidents, Navy officials said Saturday. Citing lack of confidence, Navy officials relieved Cmdr. John H. Sohl III of his command of the nuclear-powered Houston. The submarine was on standby during the filming of the movie "Hunt for Red October" when it snagged a 1,000-foot steel cable and sank the tugboat Barcona 10 miles southwest of Long Beach.
