The Titan submarine imploded in the Atlantic, the passengers all dead

The Titan submarine, missing since Sunday, imploded in the Atlantic and the five passengers are all dead, said Thursday the company OceanGate at the origin of the tourist expedition to the wreck of the Titanic. All five passengers “unfortunately died,” OceanGate said in a statement. “We now believe that our boss Stockton Rush, Shahzada Dawood and his son Suleman, Hamish Harding and Paul-Henri Nargeolet are unfortunately dead,” added the press release from the American company. The U.S. Coast Guard said wreckage of the submersible found in the search area by an ROV showed the submarine suffered “a catastrophic implosion.” “The debris field is consistent with a catastrophic implosion of the ship,” said John Mauger, Rear Admiral of the US Coast Guard. Search teams had discovered five major pieces of debris identified from the Titan submersible, according to Mauger. The United States as well as Canada had mobilized ships and planes to find the long machine of approximately 6.5 meters. The submarine had dived on Sunday morning towards the wreck of the Titanic and was due to resurface seven hours later, but contact was lost less than two hours after it left. Reports implicating OceanGate had been published since the disappearance of the machine about failures and negligence concerning the security of the submarine. The Titanic ship sank on its maiden voyage in 1912 after crashing into an iceberg off the coast of the United States and Canada, killing nearly 1,500 passengers and crew. With MAP
