The US Coast Guard has confirmed that the five individuals aboard the submerged vessel Titan tragically lost their lives due to a “devastating implosion.”

Among the victims were Stockton Rush, the CEO of Ocean Gate Expeditions; Shahzada Dawood, a Pakistani businessman, and his son Suleman; British billionaire Hamish Harding; and French adventurer Paul-Henri Nargeolet. The incident occurred when the Titan while attempting a 4,000m dive to the Titanic shipwreck on Sunday, experienced a loss of communication with its support ship within two hours of the expedition.

After the tragic news of the crew’s demise, social media platform Twitter has been abuzz with hashtags such as #Titan, #OceanGate, and #Submersible. Users have expressed their thoughts on the situation and extended sympathies to the families of the passengers.

Twitter Mourns Titan Passengers 


A widespread sentiment echoed across numerous individuals was the belief that “After 111 years, it is perhaps time for us to collectively decide to let the #Titanic rest undisturbed in the depths of the ocean, honouring the souls of those who tragically lost their lives in the 1912 incident.”


Several people expressed their astonishment upon discovering that “Ocean Gate company terminated David Lochridge, the engineer who raised safety concerns and declined to approve the sub #Titan due to an inspection revealing that the viewport was certified for a depth of only 1300 meters, contrary to the claimed 4000 meters.”

In a tweet, author Candace Owens expressed her sadness over the CEO of Ocean Gate disregarding repeated safety warnings in the pursuit of adventure. She also mentioned the unfortunate presence of a 19-year-old whose life had just begun. Owens condemned those who found amusement in the situation, describing them as despicable. She expressed relief in knowing that the individuals did not suffer.

This opportunity also prompted individuals to contemplate the preciousness of life and the importance of gratitude. As some reflected, “The billionaires aboard the Titan submarine would willingly trade their entire wealth to switch places with you at this very moment.”

Numerous individuals also remarked on the stark contrast in treatment, noting that while a boat of refugees tragically drowned during the same period as the submarine incident, minimal rescue efforts were made for them. This disparity serves as a grim reminder of the darker aspects of humanity.
