Due to the lack of oxygen, the rescuers have been working round the clock to save the people on the submersible titan.
With just six hours left before the oxygen supply for the five people on board runs out, rescuers from around the world are still searching for a missing submersible near the Titanic wreck.
The US Coast Guard, Canadian military planes, French vessels, and teleguided robots are part of the multinational search for the submersible that went missing on Sunday.
The US Coast Guard reports that the submersible has less than 6 hours’ worth of oxygen remaining, which is why rescuers are working round the clock. In the event of an emergency, Titan was designed to have an oxygen supply for 96 hours.
Titan’s crew is believed to have limited rations.
British billionaire Hamish Harding, Pakistani tycoon Shahzada Dawood, and his son are among the five people aboard the missing vessel.
On Wednesday, a Canadian plane with sonar capability was looking for the Titan vessel, and remotely operated vehicles were moved to the area where the sounds were heard.
Although experts have not been able to confirm the source of the sounds, they raised hopes that the passengers are still alive.
The Coast Guard Captain Jamie Frederick says, “In the middle of a search-and-rescue operation, you always have hope. With respect to the noises specifically, we don’t know what they are.”
“Sometimes you have to make a tough decision. We’re not there yet,” Captain Frederick said, adding that it was still a search-and-rescue operation.
A race against time to rescue the missing submersible has riveted onlookers. Television screens have been glued to maritime experts discussing the challenges for rescue efforts in a vast ocean.
Submersible safety experts expressed concern in 2018 about OceanGate’s decision not to certify the Titan through third parties such as the American Bureau of Shipping.
