Before the terrible accident in June that killed five people, OceanGate CEO and the doomed ship’s driver said three scary words to a Titan submarine passenger.
Supposedly, the Titan submersible had only been on its deep-sea journey to see the Titanic wreckage for two hours when it exploded, killing all on board.
OceanGate CEO Stockton Rush was on board, along with Shahzada Dawood and his son Suleman, British billionaire Hamish Harding, and French explorer Paul-Henry Nargeolet. When the Titan lost contact with its mothership, no one knew what would happen to them at first. But after days of a desperate search, the horrible truth came to light…
The Coast Guard confirmed that the Titan submarine had sunk, and they said it was very unlikely that anyone would be alive.
After the accident, which got everyone’s attention, a lot of questions were raised. The first one that came to mind was how could that happen? But there were also other, maybe more scary, looks into the safety of the OceanGate operation as a whole.
In fact, the CEO of the company, Stockton Rush, has come under fire because reports say he said three horrible words when getting on the Titan submarine for a dive before the one where he would die.
Brian Weed, a documentary cameraman for the Discovery Channel show “Expedition Unknown,” is said to have taken the Titan for a test drive in May 2021.
He did, however, remember a “very strange” conversation he had with Rush after the latter asked him a question about the safety of the sub.
It is said that Rush replied, “Well, there’s oxygen on board for four or five days.” Weed then asked, “What if they don’t find you?” to which Rush replied, “You’re already dead.”
Weed eventually quit filming the planned documentary because he was worried about his safety. The production of “Expedition Unknown” was called off, however.
Supposedly, the Coast Guard has recently been gathering the last bits of Titan’s wreckage. These include what are thought to be human remains that will be studied by doctors in the US.
According to new information, the last pieces of the ship were recovered and moved from the wreck site in the Atlantic Ocean last Wednesday (October 4).
May the souls of those who died on the Titan submarine rest in peace. Read the following to find out more about the story:
