In the hunt for a missing submersible exploring the Titanic wreckage with five people onboard, banging sounds have been detected from the Atlantic Ocean, signalling hope of survivors.
Sonar devices picked up the sounds, prompting increased rescue efforts. However, searches have so far been unsuccessful, and the submersible’s oxygen supply is running low. The US Coast Guard has deployed remote-operated vehicles and a vessel with sonar capability to the area. Concerns have also arisen about the submersible’s hull. International assistance has been mobilized, including the US Navy’s expertise and equipment. The situation remains dire for the occupants as they face dwindling oxygen levels and cold temperatures.
