The debris from Titan submersible has been successfully brought ashore. The recovery operation took place nearly a week after remains of the OceanGate submersible were first discovered on the ocean floor by a remotely operated vehicle.
Debris, including the tail cone, was found about 1,600 feet from the bow of the wrecked Titanic on June 22, four days after the launch of the doomed tourist expedition.

Rear Adm. John Mauger, commander of the First Coast Guard District, confirmed that the additional debris found aligns with the catastrophic loss of the pressure chamber.
In response to the incident, the Canadian Coast Guard has committed to provide ongoing support and assistance to the recovery and salvage operations as directed by the Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre in Boston.
The U.S. Coast Guard, in collaboration with the National Transportation Safety Board, has initiated a comprehensive investigation into the fatal incident. Their joint efforts aim to uncover the circumstances leading to the implosion and shed light on the factors contributing to this tragic event.
Meanwhile, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police has announced that they are closely examining the circumstances surrounding the deaths onboard the Titan. If the circumstances suggest a potential violation of criminal, federal, or provincial laws, a full investigation will be launched to ascertain accountability.
As the investigation unfolds, authorities and experts are committed to understanding the causes behind the submersible’s implosion, ensuring the safety of future deep-sea explorations, and providing closure to the affected families and loved ones.
