Study Reveals that Passengers on the Titan Submersible Were Informed of Implosion Seconds Before the Accident

New Findings Shed Light on Tragic Submersible Incident

A study conducted by engineer and submarine specialist José Luis Martín indicates that passengers aboard the Titan submersible likely became aware of the impending implosion approximately 48 seconds before the tragic event. The submersible sank vertically to a depth of approximately 900 meters within a time frame ranging from 48 to 71 seconds, leaving the passengers with no chance to react.

Intense Force and Chaotic Scene

According to the study’s conclusions, the force of the implosion was so powerful that passengers were violently thrown against each other, resulting in a chaotic and terrifying scene. José Luis Martín described the situation as something out of a horror movie, where the occupants of the submersible piled on top of each other with no possibility of escape.

Awareness Amidst Darkness

The engineer also revealed that the passengers were aware of their surroundings. Moments before the implosion, the interior of the submarine plunged into complete darkness due to a possible electrical failure, which prevented any communication with the surface.

OceanGate’s Response and Lingering Questions

Following the tragic accident, OceanGate, the company responsible for the Titan submersible, announced the suspension of all its activities. However, it is worth noting that even after the suspension announcement, the company still has a future expedition to the Azores archipelago in Portugal advertised on its website, scheduled for next year. This apparent lack of website updates raises questions about the transparency and accountability of the company regarding the incident.

Crucial Insights for Submarine Safety

The findings of José Luis Martín’s study are crucial for understanding the circumstances and challenges faced by the passengers of the Titan submersible before its tragic implosion. This information can serve as a basis for improving safety protocols in submarines and ensuring the protection of occupants in future underwater expeditions.

Strengthening Safety Measures

It is essential for companies involved in underwater operations to reinforce safety procedures and implement measures to prevent similar accidents. The safety and well-being of passengers must be an absolute priority in these expeditions, avoiding tragedies like that of the Titan submersible from happening again.

Call for Thorough Investigation and Accountability

In this regard, it is important for competent authorities to conduct a thorough investigation into the accident to determine the exact causes of the implosion and identify any potential failures in the submarine’s safety and maintenance systems. Responsibility and accountability are essential to ensure public trust and the integrity of underwater operations.

Learning from the Tragedy and Ensuring Passenger Safety

While awaiting further information and investigation results, it is imperative for the underwater exploration industry, as well as the companies and experts involved, to be committed to learning from this tragedy and taking effective measures to prevent future accidents. Passenger safety must always come first, providing a reliable and protected environment during underwater expeditions.
