Son Of Submarine Passenger Was Given A Gift Before The Accident

The mother and wife of Titan submersible casualties Shahzada and Suleman Dawood, was planning to travel on the trip with her husband, but she gave the seat to her son instead because he was excited about the endeavor.

On Monday, Christine Dawood told a British media outlet that she and her husband had planned to take a deep-sea voyage to see the Titanic wreck years ago, but they had to postpone it because of the COVID-19 outbreak.

Dawood added that her child and her husband had wanted to see the famed shipwreck and that her son had been devastated when they first began planning the trip as he was too young to come along.

When questioned how she felt about letting her kid take her place on the submersible, Dawood, in tears, avoided answering.

Dawood and her daughter were aboard an auxiliary vessel when they received news that contact with the sub had been lost.

Dawood told her relatives that she had given up hope after 96 hours, implying that she was preparing herself for bad news. 

Investigations into the June 18 incident are being conducted jointly by the Transportation Safety Board of Canada, the United States Coast Guard, the United States National Transportation Safety Board, the United Kingdom Marine Accident Investigation Branch, and the French marine casualties investigation board.

On Monday. the U.S. Coast Guard said that they had retrieved what they believed to be human remains from the wreckage of the submersible that had exploded while exploring the Titanic’s ruins.

At the Canadian Coast Guard port in St. John’s, Newfoundland, on Wednesday morning, salvaged parts from the vessel were unloaded from the Horizon Arctic, a Canadian ship.

According to the Coast Guard, the evidence will be sent to a U.S. port for additional examination and analysis by the Marine Board of Investigation.

It has been nearly a week after a remotely controlled vehicle found the wreckage of the lost OceanGate submersible on the sea floor.  On June 22, just four days after the departure of the fateful tourist excursion, particles, notably the tail cone, was discovered roughly 1,600 feet away from the bow of the sunken Titanic.
