Titan, an ill-fated submersible expedited to Titanic wreckage with five people on board including a father-son duo from Pakistan exploded with the tragic death of all five.
Officials announced that additional human remains and debris have been recovered from the Titan submersible that imploded while en route to explore the Titanic wreck, resulting in the tragic deaths of all five individuals on board.
The Coast Guard stated that this recovery operation was conducted in collaboration with the US Navy, and the materials were offloaded at an undisclosed port.
The investigation continues, with international agencies coordinating a joint review of the evidence for forensic testing.
Meanwhile, the Marine Board of Investigation is conducting its analysis and witness interviews in preparation for a public hearing on the incident.
The operator of the vessel, OceanGate, has ceased operations since the tragic event.
Among the victims was Stockton Rush, the submersible’s pilot, a father-son duo from Pakistan and CEO of the company.
Who were Dawoods?
Months earlier, OceanGate CEO Stockton Rush and his wife Wendy flew from the United States to meet the Dawood family in London, aiming to alleviate their concerns about the submersible’s safety and convince them it would be secure to visit the wreckage of the Titanic.
Mr. Rush, who held the belief that diving to the depths of the Atlantic in the Titan was “safer than crossing the street,” personally met with the family at a cafe near Waterloo in February. They discussed the design and safety aspects of the submersible.
