Missing sub likely suffered 'catastrophic implosion'

The United States Coast Guard confirmed the debris field discovered during search and rescue efforts for the missing Titanic tourist submersible is likely from the OceanGate Titan. "In consultation with experts from within the unified command, the debris is consistent with the catastrophic loss of the pressure chamber," the USCG said. "Upon this determination, we immediately notified the families." The coast guard says it discovered two separate debris fields, including a tail and nose cone, approximately 1,600 feet from the wreck site of the Titanic. The coast guard also says there does not appear to be any connection between the banging noises that were heard and the location of the debris field. "Again, this was a catastrophic implosion of the vessel which would have generated a significant broadband sound [in the ocean] that the sonar buoys would have picked up," the coast guard said.
