‘Presumed’ human remains recovered in wreckage of Titanic submersible

Debris from the tourist submersible that imploded, resulting in the death of all five people on board, has been recovered and brought ashore for examination, according to the U.S. Coast Guard. The wreckage of the Titan, which was destroyed while diving to the Titanic wreck, along with presumed human remains, were transported to St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada, by the Canadian-flagged vessel Horizon Arctic. The Coast Guard stated that the evidence will be taken to a U.S. port for analysis and testing by a marine board of investigation. U.S. medical professionals will also analyze the recovered human remains. The specific nature and extent of the remains were not disclosed.

Video footage showed fragments of the submersible, including the nose and other shattered pieces, being lifted from the Horizon Arctic. Additionally, a damaged section of the Titan’s hull and machinery were removed from the ship in St. John’s. The examination of the debris is expected to provide more information about the cause of the implosion that occurred during the submersible’s voyage to the Titanic wreck.

Canada’s Transportation Safety Board has initiated its own investigation into the incident. The submersible fragments were discovered on the seabed, approximately 1,600 feet from the bow of the Titanic wreck, four days after the submersible lost contact with its support surface ship. The search for the wreckage received global media attention and resulted in the tragic fate of the five individuals on board.

Among the deceased were Stockton Rush, the submersible pilot and CEO of OceanGate Expeditions, the company that owned and operated the Titan. The other victims included British billionaire Hamish Harding, Pakistani-born businessman Shahzada Dawood and his son Suleman, and French oceanographer Paul-Henri Nargeolet. The accident has raised concerns about the lack of regulation in such expeditions and OceanGate’s decision to forgo third-party industry review and certification of the Titan’s unique design.

Pelagic Research, the organization operating the robotic vehicle used in the debris recovery, stated that their team is still on the mission and will be demobilizing from the Horizon Arctic. The accident highlights the need for further examination and regulation of similar expeditions to prevent future tragedies.
