Titan Submersible Wreckage Seen For The First Time After Being Recovered From Sea Floor

Initially, it was hoped that the Titan’s crew could be rescued, despite the challenges that come with a deep ocean rescue. The governments of Canada and the United States contributed vast resources to the search, and private companies also sent specialist vessels and equipment to help out. There was optimism when sonar picked up a knocking sound that seemed to occur every 30 minutes. Even when the emergency oxygen was due to run out, rescuers refused to give up hope and continued the search.

Unfortunately, four days in, debris from the sub was discovered and it became obvious that there was no chance of finding any survivors. Since then, fingers have been pointed at the vessel’s construction and design. Footage has also emerged of Ocean Gate CEO Stockton Rush, who was on board Titan when it was lost, bragging about breaking rules and talking dismissively about safety certifications. Shahzada Dawood, Suleman Dawood, Paul-Henri Nargeolet, and Hamish Harding were also aboard the Titan when it imploded.

As for those on board the submersible, the implosion likely happened before any of them even knew something was wrong. The investigation, led by the Coast Guard’s Marine Board of Investigation, will undoubtedly reveal more details about the exact cause, but failure of a pressure vessel at that depth can occur in a fraction of a second.
