The ROV, which was exploring the ocean floor approximately 700 kilometers south of Newfoundland, Canada, successfully retrieved the remains. The Titan search involved the use of the ROV, which was deployed from the Canadian-flagged vessel, Horizon Arctic.
Further analysis will be conducted on the remains once they are transported to the United States. The families of the victims are being assisted by the Coast Guard in the process of identifying the remains.
The investigation into the cause of the Titan’s implosion is still ongoing by the Coast Guard. Nevertheless, authorities have expressed their belief that the sub’s cabin experienced a sudden decompression, leading to the incident.
The privately owned submersible known as the Titan was specifically engineered to accommodate a maximum of six passengers. The vehicle had multiple safety measures, such as a backup life support system and a means of escape.
The collapse of the Titan serves as a cautionary tale about the perils of venturing beneath the ocean’s surface. The Coast Guard expressed gratitude for the assistance from various international and inter-agency sources in recovering the wreckage of the Titan and the presumed human remains.
The ongoing investigation is still trying to determine the cause of the Titan’s implosion. Updates will be provided by the Coast Guard as they become accessible.
