A deep-sea submersible carrying five people on a voyage to the century-old wreck of the Titanic was found in pieces from a "catastrophic implosion"

A deep-sea submersible named Titan, operated by OceanGate Expeditions, met a devastating end during its mission to explore the century-old wreck of the Titanic 

The Titan had been missing since it lost contact with its surface support ship from a week. Coast Guard officials stated that the debris field aligned with the characteristics of a catastrophic implosion of the submersible. The exact cause of the implosion and subsequent destruction of the Titan remains unknown. 

OceanGate confirmed that there were no survivors among the five men on board the Titan. The crew included Stockton Rush, the founder and CEO of OceanGate Expeditions, who was piloting the submersible.

Multiple countries, including the United States, Canada, France, and Britain, participated in a five-day search operation involving aircraft and vessels. The search covered thousands of square miles of open seas in hopes of locating the Titan. 

The global attention received by this search overshadowed another maritime tragedy involving a migrant vessel off the coast of Greece, which claimed the lives of hundreds of people.
