Missing Titanic Submarine Running Out Of Oxygen

PAMELA EPHRAIM With Agency Report

The missing submersible vessel near the wreck of the Titanic has entered a critical stage, as fears mount over low levels of oxygen left on board.

It went missing in a remote area of the North Atlantic on Sunday with a four-day oxygen supply left for the five crew on board.

The crew members have been identified as British businessman Hamish Harding, British-Pakistani businessman Shahzada Dawood and his son Suleman, former French navy diver Paul-Henry Nargeolet and the CEO of OceanGate – which operates the submersible – Stockton Rush.

The minivan-sized submersible, which was owned and operated by the private company OceanGate Expeditions, is yet to be located.

A search-and-rescue mission was launched. However, remote-controlled underwater search vehicles (ROVs) were deployed to the area where sounds were detected but are yet to find anything.

“One of the factors that makes it hard to predict how much oxygen is left is that we do not know the rate of the consumption of oxygen per occupant on the sub,” Rear Admiral John Mauger from the US Coast Guard told the British press.
