US Coast Guard says ‘presumed human remains’ have been found in wreckage of Titan sub recovered from 12,500ft below the Atlantic surface after ‘catastrophic implosion’ killed Titanic Five
- Human remains have been discovered in the wreckage of the Titan submersible
- The remains will now be transported aboard a ship to a port in the US, where they will undergo testing and analysis
- The finding shocked experts, after a coroner said she believed it was unlikely officials would ever find the remains of those on board
Human remains have been found in the wreckage of the Titan submersible on Wednesday, the Coast Guard announced.
Several identifiable parts of the ship were lifted ashore on Wednesday afternoon, including the sub’s nose and a large panel which appears to be from its tail end.
Amid those recovered pieces, Coast Guard officials said they discovered human remains, which will now be transported aboard a ship to a port in the United States where they will undergo testing and analysis.
The discoveries surprised experts who suspected Titan was destroyed when it suffered a ‘catastrophic implosion‘ with five people on board during a journey to the wreckage of the Titanic.
In fact, earlier on Wednesday a coroner told DailyMail.com she believed the remains of those onboard — including British billionaire Hamish Harding, French explorer Paul-Henri Nargeolet, OceanGate CEO Stockton Rush and father and son Shahzada and Suleman Dawood — would likely never be recovered.
This is a breaking news story and will be updated.
