What Final Moments Would Have Been Like on the Titan Submersible: Insights from an Expert

An expert stated the people who were on board the Titan submersible when it burst likely knew about the coming disaster for approximately one minute before everything exploded.

José Luis Martin, an expert on Spanish submarines, hypothesized the submersible may have lost its stability as a result of an electrical breakdown that left it with no power.

This would have caused it to fall into the bottom of the ocean straight down like an arrow, with its porthole pointing downward.

Stacked Up and in Darkness

He estimated the submarine began to freefall at a depth of approximately 5,600 feet and dropped as if it were a rock without any form of control for approximately 3,000 feet.

That’s until it ‘popped like a balloon’ at approximately 8,600 feet, due to the quickly changing pressure.

During the terrible freefall, which would have lasted around 48 to 71 seconds, Martin hypothesized the passengers would have been stacked on top of each other in complete darkness.

On June 18, when the Titan submersible was descending to the site of the Titanic’s wreck, 12,500 feet below the surface, it was unable to maintain communication with the vessel that was providing it with support.

On Board

It wasn’t until days later that its debris was found. The phrase ‘catastrophic implosion’ was used to describe what happened to the Titan submersible.

On board the submersible were the tourists Hamish Harding, 58, Shahzada Dawood, 48, and his young son Sulaiman Dawood, 19, a pilot for the French Navy named Paul-Henry (PH) Nargeolet, and OceanGate CEO Stockton Rush.

All of them passed away after the submarine became compromised while underwater.

According to documents that OceanGate filed with a United States District Court in Norfolk, Virginia which oversees proceedings for the Titanic shipwreck, at least 46 persons were able to ride on OceanGate’s submersible to the Titanic wreckage site in 2021 and 2022.
