- Presumed human remains discovered within the wreckage of the ill-fated Titan submersible.
- The Marine Board of Investigation initiates a comprehensive probe into the sub's disastrous plunge to the Titanic shipwreck.
- Concerns arise over OceanGate's safety practices and the unregulated nature of the Titan.
The ill-fated Titan submersible, now infamous for its disastrous dive to the Titanic, has given up human remains within its wreckage according to a statement by the US Coast Guard. Shards of the imploded submersible, posthumously arriving in St John's, Canada, revealed the sub's landing frame and a rear cover mixed in with the debris.
Assigned to the case, US medical specialists will undertake an exhaustive examination of the possible remains. Concurrently, the US Coast Guard, in the preliminary phase of an in-depth investigation, aims to bring clarity to the causes behind the cataclysmic event. The collected evidence will be transported to a US port for comprehensive analysis by the Coast Guard's Marine Board of Investigation (MBI).
Acknowledging the daunting task ahead, MBI chair Capt Jason Neubauer expressed gratitude for the international and interagency support that's aiding the recovery and preservation of this crucial evidence from the ocean's formidable depths.
Tragedy struck the Titan on June 18th, when it suffered a catastrophic implosion mere 90 minutes into a voyage to the legendary 1912 shipwreck. The Titanic's final resting place in the icy depths of the North Atlantic claimed five more lives that day, including British explorer Hamish Harding and OceanGate's head, Stockton Rush.
Despite the immense challenges the harsh marine environment poses, the Coast Guard's perseverance has yielded five significant pieces of the submersible in a debris field near the Titanic's bow. However, critics have pointed towards safety oversights in OceanGate's practices, expressing concerns about the unregulated Titan.
