What Happened to 5 Tourists on the Titanic Sub OceanGate?

The Titanic Submersible was launched on Sunday in the North Atlantic. The moment it lost contact, rescuers sent their ships, planes, and other equipment to the site where it disappeared. 

However, the owner of the Titanic Submersible OceanGate has confirmed that, sadly, the passengers have died. 

The company said “We now believe that our CEO Stockton Rush, Shahzada Dawood and his son Suleman Dawood, Hamish Harding, and Paul-Henri Nargeolet, have sadly been lost”. 

They added, “These men were true explorers who shared a distinct spirit of adventure, and a deep passion for exploring and protecting the world’s oceans. Our hearts are with these five souls and every member of their families during this tragic time. We grieve the loss of life and joy they brought to everyone they knew”. 

Earlier, the US Coast Guard said that a debris field was found on the surface of the ocean near the Titanic as the submersible’s 96 hour mark crossed, which means the Titanic ran out of breathable air. He also said that the Debris was found by a remotely operated underwater robot that searched for it and later evaluated it. 

As per the US Coast Guard, the undersea robot that was sent by the Canadian ship had reached the surface, while a French Research Institute said that their deep diving robot with a camera, lights, and arms joined the operation.
