Titanic Sub Rescuers Hear Haunting Underwater Sounds

Published on

On Wednesday morning, there was a glimmer of optimism in the race against time to locate the missing submersible Titan, which has not been heard from since Sunday.

The submersible’s oxygen supply is expected to run out on Thursday.

Sounds emanating from the murky Atlantic Ocean were heard in the search area, but so far there has been no trace of the OceanGate vessel carrying five people.

“Canadian P-3 aircraft detected underwater noises in the search area. As a result, ROV operations were relocated in an attempt to explore the origin of the noises,” the First Coast Guard District said in a Twitter post early Wednesday. ROV is the acronym for “remotely operated vehicle.”

“Those ROV searches have yielded negative results but continue. Additionally, the data from the P-3 aircraft has been shared with our U.S. Navy experts for further analysis which will be considered in future search plans,” the Coast Guard posted.

The sounds were described as “banging” every 30 minutes, according to internal Department of Homeland Security e-mails sent to leadership, as reported by Rolling Stone and the Independent.

According to reports, “RCC Halifax launched a P8, Poseidon, which has underwater detection capabilities from the air.”

“The P8 deployed sonobuoys, which reported a contact in a position close to the distress position. The P8 heard banging sounds in the area every 30 minutes. Four hours later additional sonar was deployed and banging was still heard,” the report stated.

In a Wednesday morning follow-up tweet, the First Coast Guard District stated, “Three vessels arrived on-scene Wednesday morning, the The John Cabot has side scanning sonar capabilities and is conducting search patterns alongside the Skandi Vinland and the Atlantic Merlin.”
