ACCIDENTE

El sumergible Titan fue destruido por una "catastrófica implosión”

By Jordi Bou

June 23, 2023 - Un sumergible de mar profundo con cinco personas en un viaje al naufragio del Titanic sufrió una “implosión catastrófica” que mató a todos a bordo, informaron funcionarios de la Guardia Costera de EUA.

Debris from the Titan submersible, which had been missing since Jun 18, was detected on Jun 22 by a robotic diving vehicle deployed from a Canadian ship as part of an international rescue effort.

Remains of the submersible, which lost contact with a surface ship about 1 hour and 45 minutes into a two-hour descent, were discovered on the seabed about 490 metres from the bow of Titanic wreck, about 3,800m below the surface, U.S. Coast Guard Rear Admiral John Mauger said.

The U.S. Navy detected sounds “consistent with an implosion” shortly after OceanGate's Titan submersible lost contact, a navy official has said.
