Multiple sources have stated that no divers were sent down. Those ROVs are used on oil wells. They have cameras and arms, and can weld, cut, lift, and do almost anything a human can.

The Work ROV is the work horse of the subsea services spread and operators extended arm into subsea. Typically equipped with two manipulators the work ROV can both do rough operations and delicate finger tip work at several thousand meters depth.
