In this article, we are going to talk about a new case. A breathless countdown for the Titanic submersible with just a few hours of oxygen was left. Rescue crews from all around the world are desperately seeking a missing submersible with five people on board near the Titanic ruins in the Atlantic Ocean as the world watches in respect. Only a few hours’ worth of oxygen is supposedly left for the five people aboard the ship. Less than 4 hours of oxygen remain for the crew members, according to the US Coast Guard. The rescue personnel are working diligently around the clock as a result of the most recent information regarding breathing air in the ship. A Canadian aircraft with SONAR capabilities had earlier on Wednesday heard thumping noises nearby, which prompted the deployment of remotely controlled vehicles to look into the noise’s cause.

Although the source of these sounds was unknown, it gave rise to optimism that the tourists on the little tourist boat were still alive. “Hope always endures during a search and rescue mission. We are unable to conclusively pinpoint the source of the noises, though, according to Coast Guard Captain Jamie Frederick in an official statement. The Titan was built to hold up to 96 hours’ worth of oxygen in case of emergencies.
The US Coast Guard, Canadian military planes, French ships, teleoperated robots, and other organizations are working together in this international effort to find the lost submersible. On Sunday, June 18, the event had place while the ship was traveling to see the Titanic debris. British millionaire and explorer Hamish Harding, 58, a businessman from Pakistan named Shahzada Dawood, 48, and their son Suleman, 19, a French explorer named Paul-Henri Nargeolet, 77, and Stockton Rush, 61, the founder and CEO of OceanGate, are among those on board the ship.
People all around the world have been enthralled by the unfolding circumstances surrounding the lost submersible and the race against time to rescue any potential survivors. People have been glued to their televisions as marine experts have described the difficulties encountered during rescue operations in such a vast sea region. Experts have highlighted safety concerns about the submersible vessel in 2018, stressing OceanGate’s choice to forego third-party certification, such as the participation of the American Bureau of Shipping, a key player in submersible classification.
The submersible tale is reminiscent of recent high-stakes rescue missions like the retrieval of more than 30 trapped miners in Chile in 2010 and the incredible rescue of a Thai boys’ football team from a flooded cave system in 2018. According to Reuters, there have been more than 2 million searches for submarine missing this week on Google. So, Stay tuned to pkb news.
