I know this is going to spread all over the ocean.

Revelation 16:3

"And the Second angel poured his bowl into the ocean, and it became as red as a mans blood; and every living sea creature died."


Don't forget gas masks..

Being a diver I can tell you that it still would not work. That leak is at 5000 feet, which is roughly 151 bar, or 151 times the weight of the atmosphere at sea level. At that depth a 80lb scuba tank would not even last a single whole breath, and its way beyond crush depth for any rigid structure pressurized diving vehicle to survive. Even if they could overcome those obstacles the human body is not designed to intake air that is compressed 151 its normal volume. Even using a tri-mixed type gas, you would instantly get narcosis, O2 poisoning, and the bends.

The deepest Military type submarine dive was by the Russian Submarine Komsomolets, a titanium hulled sub. Its depth record was 4265 feet, several hundred feet shy of the leak. The deepest US subs are the Seawolf class, they only reach 2400 feet. Even then, those subs are not designed to do that kind of work; they have no work windows, no robotic arms on their hulls, they are extremely large and hard to maneuver, and their large size would cause they ocean currants to constantly push them off station.

There was a Bathysphere that went down 35813 feet, but it was extremely specialized, very small, and had a lot of problems. It would take them longer to rebuild something along those lines then to keep trying with the ROV’s or drilling the relief wells.
