Multiple Air Attacks at Pearl Harbor
Three torpedo hits occurred to Oklahoma soon after the attack commenced. As ship began to capsize, two more torpedoes struck; as men abandoned ship Japanese planes dove in for strafing runs. Oklahoma rolled over with mast touching the bottom of the harbor. ... 415 killed during the attack and 32 others were wounded. Many crew members were trapped in the overturned battleship surviving in pockets of air until rescuers could cut access holes in the bottom of the ship to rescue them; a total of 32 survivors were ultimately saved.
