Search continues for missing submarine that led to Titanic wreck, Pakistani businessman son among passengers

The search continues for a submarine that has been missing since Sunday, taking a recreational trip to the wreck of the historic Titanic, which sank in the depths of the Atlantic Ocean.

The five passengers on board include Pakistani-born businessman Prince Dawood and his son Sulaiman Dawood, British billionaire businessman and adventurer Hamish Harding, and Stockton Rush, chief executive of the company that manages the entertainment expedition, Stockton Rush.

It should be noted that a ticket of two and a half million dollars is bought for this eight-day trip and the wreck of the Titanic can be seen by going down to 3800 meters on the bottom of the sea.

According to the US Coast Guard, contact with the submarine was lost an hour and 45 minutes after the start of its journey on Sunday, and the search is being assisted by two C-130 aircraft and underwater sonar.

The U.S. Coast Guard said Monday night that the submarine may have 70 to 96 hours of oxygen on board.

"Our estimate is 70 to 96 hours (for search operations) at this time," U.S. Coast Guard Rear Admiral John Mager told a news conference.

However, he said that the area where the search operation is being conducted is quite remote due to which difficulties are being faced.

Ocean Gate, the company that organizes this leisure trip, also says that every possible effort is being made to save the people on board the submarine, in which, according to officials, private companies including the US and Canadian Navy are also participating.
