سباق مع الزمن للعثور على الغواصة تيتان

By Jordi Bou & Ninian Carter

June 20, 2023 - في ظل تأكيد خفر السواحل الأميركي رصد ”أصوات تحت الماء“ في منطقة البحث، يواصل رجال الإنقاذ جهودهم للعثور على الغواصة المفقودة - التي كان ركابها يستكشفون حطام السفينة المنكوبة تيتانيك - في ظل تقلص إمدادات الأكسجين المخصص لدعم الحياة.

Speaking at a press conference to provide an update on the search and rescue operation, Captain Jamie Frederick from the First Coast Guard District said that there is about 40 hours of breathable air left on the sub, based on the initial reports of 96 hours left.

British-Pakistani businessman Shahzada Dawood and his son Suleman are two of the five on board, along with British businessman and explorer Hamish Harding.

Paul-Henry Nargeolet, a former French Navy diver who has explored the Titanic before, is also on the vessel, as is Stockton Rush, chief executive of OceanGate – the firm behind the dive.

The wreckage of the Titanic that sank in 1912 after hitting an iceberg lies at about 3,800 metres.
