The hunt for further pieces of evidence into the final moments of the Titan submersible near the wreck of the Titanic will continue, but it seems doubtful the mortal remains of those onboard will be able to be recovered.
After days of searching and a frantic race to find any evidence of the lost submersible Titan before the 96 hours of presumed oxygen reserves onboard expired on Thursday morning, pieces of wreckage were discovered by by underwater robots engaged in the rescue effort. The discovery of pieces of the sub confirmed it had been lost in a catastrophic hull failure, but at least strongly implied those onboard had not suffered long.
The Joint Rescue Coordination Centre (JRCC) and the Canadian Armed Forces offer their sincere condolences to the family and friends of the crew of the Titan for their tragic loss.
