We now have new information about the last moments of the Titanic exploration. It was truly devastating when a group of explorers lost their lives during an incredible journey to see the Titanic wreck at the bottom of the sea, which is about 12,500 feet deep. The whole world was in shock.
Five people tragically lost their lives: British billionaire explorer Hamish Harding, French diver Paul-Henri Nargeolet, Pakistani businessman Shahzada Dawood, his son Suleman, and OceanGate CEO Stockton Rush.
They found debris from the Titanic on the ocean floor near the front of the ship, five days after it left on June 18th.
Christine, who is married to Shahzada Dawood and is the mother of Suleman, has recently decided to share some heartfelt information about the preparations for their expedition and the entertainment they brought with them.
During one of their briefings, the group was told that they would experience complete darkness because the Titan sub’s headlights would be turned off to save battery power for exploring the wreck.
However, they were also informed to expect the captivating experience of witnessing bioluminescent creatures. These fascinating organisms thrive in the deep parts of the ocean where sunlight is limited, resulting in more than 90% of marine life emitting a mesmerizing glow.
Christine shared that her husband Shahzada was really excited about the upcoming dive to the Titanic. He kept expressing his enthusiasm and repeatedly exclaimed, “I’m diving tomorrow!” I am going diving tomorrow! In addition, Stockton had a fun idea for the passengers to bring their favorite music on board. They were allowed to download songs to a Bluetooth speaker, with the exception of country music, which was not allowed.
At first, Christine was supposed to go with her husband on the submersible, but due to some circumstances, Suleman ended up taking her spot instead. The Dawood family became fascinated with the Titanic in 2012 when they visited an exhibition in Singapore. The exhibition was held to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the ship’s tragic sinking.
Christine’s interest continued, and after seven years, while on a trip to Greenland where the Titanic had crashed into a glacier, she unexpectedly came across an advertisement for the OceanGate expedition. However, because of the pandemic, their plans got postponed, and as a result, Suleman became old enough to join his father on the journey.
