On Sunday, June 18, 2023, a sub-team went to explore the wreckage of the Titanic on board a submarine that lost contact with the surface. 

The wreck of the luxury liner known as the Titanic is located 900 miles east of Cape Cod and approximately 13,000 feet below sea level. The sub-team was constituted of 5 members, Hamish Harding, Paul Henri Nargeolet, Shahzada Dawood and his son Suleman Dawood, and Stockton Rush. Unfortunately, the exploration did not go as planned. The US Coast Guard says that contact with the submarine was lost about an hour and 45 minutes after the submersible departed.

The research was immediately launched on Sunday. After four days of research, the Coast Guard announces the death of the five passengers of the submarine. The Coast Guard confirmed that according to debris found, the submarine suffered a catastrophic implosion leading to the death of the passengers. ” The debris field is compatible with a catastrophic implosion of the ship,” said John Mauger, Rear Admiral of the Coast Guard.  Also among the passengers was Stockton Rush, the CEO of the tour operator.
