The United States Coast Guard stated that they have recovered “presumed human remains” and debris from the notorious Titan submersible that imploded earlier this year in June.
The U.S. Coast Guard announced on Tuesday that remaining debris from the Titan submersible have been found, and the sub was reportedly still holding “presumed human remains.”
The submersible exploded back in June while en route to the historic Titanic ocean liner that went down in 1912.
The release from the Coast Guard stated that evidence recovered from the North Atlantic Ocean seafloor by marine safety engineers from the Coast Guard’s Marine Board of Investigation (MBI) were “carefully recovered from within the debris,” and have been “transported for analysis by U.S. medical professionals.”
“Additional presumed human remains were carefully recovered from within Titan’s debris and transported for analysis by US medical professionals,” the release continued.
The Coast Guard said on Tuesday that the next step will be to convene a joint evidence review session with the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and international organizations to assess the debris, followed by a public hearing at some time.
According to the Coast Guard, MBI investigators have been conducting continuing evidence analysis and witness interviews.
The MBI has also been investigating just what caused the implosion, along with help from France, Canada, and the United Kingdom.
On June 18th, OceanGate’s Titan submersible went missing while on a commercial deep-sea voyage to the Titanic. It was later found that the missing submersible imploded about 1 hour and 45 minutes into its descent, killing all five people on board.
OceanGate charged $250,000 per ticket to visit the legendary wreckage of the Titanic.
Legal experts have claimed that the families of those onboard the vessel do not have a legal avenue to sue.
The people who were aboard the Titan were Stockton Rush, the CEO of OceanGate, Hamish Harding, a British billionaire who had been on many travel adventures, including a flight to space, Paul-Henri Nargeolet, a French Titanic expert and diver, Shahzada Dawood, a Pakistani business mogul, and his 19-year-old son Suleman Dawood.
