U.S. Navy divers are looking for debris from a Chinese spy balloon shot down by a U.S. fighter jet in South Carolina.
The US needs to find remnants of the Chinese spy balloon as they may provide valuable insight into the purpose of the balloon and Beijing's spying capabilities.
Officials believe the debris is scattered over several miles of water at a depth of about 50 feet.
Both the Navy and Coast Guard are involved in the recovery process. The debris could be as large as two school buses.
The balloon launch capped off a remarkable week of the high-stakes international drama unfolding in the skies of the continental United States.
China claims the balloon was a weather balloon that drifted off course and was not for surveillance.
But the Biden administration says the purpose of the balloon aws China's somewhat ill-fated attempt to spy on U.S. military installations.
