Rescue Mission Launched in Final Attempt to Save Titanic Submarine

In a race against time to rescue the passengers of the Titan submersible, which embarked on a deep-sea expedition to explore the legendary Titanic wreckage, a desperate last-ditch effort has commenced. On Tuesday night, a convoy of heavy machinery and submarines arrived in Newfoundland, including unmanned vehicles capable of reaching depths of 19,000 feet underwater. Three C-17 aircraft from the U.S. Air Force delivered the equipment, which included two powerful Hyundai winches with a line pull capacity of 6000 kg, a substantial roll of cable, and two high-voltage machines.

Following unloading and transportation facilitated by six flatbed trucks, the equipment was brought to a port where the Horizon Arctic ship awaited departure at midnight. However, the journey to the submerged location of the Titan submersible is estimated to take approximately 15 hours. With the Titan potentially resting as deep as 12,000 feet below the surface and weighing 10,432 kg, both winches will be crucial in the extraction process.

Late Tuesday night, intermittent banging sounds were reported near the area where the Titan disappeared, raising hopes of a possible breakthrough. The missing passengers aboard the submersible include billionaire Hamish Harding, French explorer Paul-Henri Nargeolet, OceanGate CEO Stockton Rush, and Shahzada Dawood, 48, along with his son Sulaiman Dawood, 19.
