Titanic Submarine | ‘Presumed’ Human Remains Recovered In Debris Of Titanic Submersible | News18
“Presumed” human remains were recovered from within the shattered hulk of a submersible that imploded while on a voyage to the century-old wreck of the Titanic earlier this month, the U.S. Coast Guard said on Wednesday (June 28).
A Canadian-flagged ship brought ashore debris from the Titan submersible on Wednesday that imploded while on a voyage to the century-old wreck of the Titanic earlier this month, killing all five people on board.
Shattered fragments were pulled up by a crane off the Horizon Arctic vessel and on to a truck at the St. John’s harbor in Newfoundland.
The debris is expected to shed more light on the cause of the catastrophic implosion that killed everyone on board – OceanGate Expeditions CEO Stockton Rush; British billionaire Hamish Harding; Pakistani-born business leader Shahzada Dawood and his 19-year-old son, Suleman; and French oceanographer Paul-Henri Nargeolet.
It was not immediately clear where the debris was headed.
Canadian and U.S. authorities have in the past week announced investigations into the incident, which has raised questions about the unregulated nature of such expeditions.
The deep-sea submersible operated by OceanGate Expeditions was discovered in pieces on the seabed some 1,600 feet (488 meters) from the bow of the Titanic by a robotic diving vehicle last week, ending a multinational five-day search for survivors.
