Heartbreaking Update on Lost Titanic Submarine Carrying Pakistani Billionaire

A distressing update has surfaced about the lost submarine, Titan. It was on an expedition to explore the Titanic wreckage. Pakistani billionaire Shahzada Dawood, 48 and his son Suleman Dawood, 19 were among the passengers on board. Tragically, their underwater journey to witness the remnants of the iconic ship has taken a devastating turn.

The US Coast Guard announced the loss of contact with the submarine approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes into its journey. Moreover, extensive efforts are underway to locate and establish communication with the missing submarine. However, it is believed to be somewhere in the vast Atlantic Ocean.

Search Efforts

Sonar technology has played a vital role in the search operation. Sonars deployed in the North Atlantic Ocean have repeatedly detected banging sounds emanating from beneath the water surface every 30 minutes. These acoustic feedback signals provide valuable information for directing search efforts.

Amidst the search efforts, a Canadian P3 aircraft reported sighting a white rectangular object in the water. However, the investigation shifted focus to the acoustic feedback phenomenon, leading to the diversion of the initially assigned ship for further exploration.

Moreover, Retired British Navy rear admiral Chris Parry, expressed concerns about the slim chances of finding the submarine and the complexity of its retrieval. Two primary challenges loom large; determining the submerged vessel’s location and devising an unprecedented method to raise it from the seabed. Nevertheless, experts are actively exploring solutions to overcome these obstacles.

Moreover, time is of the essence as the remaining oxygen supply onboard the missing submarine is rapidly depleting. It is projected to run out around 12 PM UK time (4:00 PM-PKT), heightening the urgency of the rescue operation.

In a last ditch effort, the specialized vessel Odysseus 6K is enroute to Canada. It is capable of diving to depths of 6,000 meters or 19,000 feet. Odysseus 6K represents hope for the search operation. Its submersion is scheduled to begin at midnight.

However, exploration at depths of 10,000 feet raises concerns about the potential implosion of the submarine due to colossal water pressure. The immense weight of the water at such depths poses a significant threat to the submersible’s safety. The situation remains highly uncertain and perilous.
