Missing Titanic submarine: Oceangate whistleblower’s fears realized

Rescuers were scouring thousands of square miles in the remote North Atlantic for a third day on Tuesday, racing against time to find a missing submersible after it disappeared while taking wealthy tourists to see the wreckage of the Titanic in deep waters off Canada’s coast.

The 21-foot Titan has the capacity to stay underwater for 96 hours, according to its specifications – giving the five people aboard until Thursday morning before air runs out. One pilot and four passengers were inside the submersible early on Sunday when it lost communication with a ship on the surface about an hour and 45 minutes into its dive.

Oceangate, the company that operates the vessel, has been criticized after the incident.

A lawsuit filed by the company’s former employee David Lochridge in a US court in 2018 has also surfaced amid the search for Titan.

Instead of addressing David’s concerns , he was kicked out from his job.
