Heartbreaking News: All 5 Passengers Onboard Titanic Sub Pronounced Dead

The five people onboard the submarine have been presumed dead after the wreckage was found on the ocean floor, indicating a possible implosion in the submarine.

The submersible suffered a ‘catastrophic implosion‘ just 1,600ft from the bow of Titanic, the US Coast Guard announced late on Thursday.

Debris of the Sub Indicates an Implosion

The crucial search for Titanic 5 on the Titan, a 21ft submersible operated by OceanGate Expeditions, drew to a sad ending when a remote-operated submarine from a Canadian ship found debris on the ocean floor. 

The Titanic submersible that’s been missing for days suffered a catastrophic loss of pressure that imploded the vessel, likely killing all five passengers onboard, the Coast Guard said Thursday.

Coast Guard Rear Adm. John Mauger said a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) had discovered a portion of the Titan roughly 1,600 feet from the bow of the Titanic wreck on the ocean floor.

“The debris is consistent with the catastrophic loss of the pressure chamber,” Mauger said at a news conference. “Upon this determination, we immediately notified the families.”

All 5 Presumed Dead

At a news conference, an OceanGate spokesman told The Washington Post that the passengers “have sadly been lost.”

Speaking on the occasion, Pakistan’s foreign ministry sent its “deepest condolences” to the family of British-Pakistani father and son, Shahzada and Suleman Dawood, who are two of the five crew members now known to have died on the Titan submersible.

Shahzada, 48, lived with his wife, Christine, and another child, Alina, in Surbiton, southwest London. The family was spending a month in Canada prior to the dive.
