Human remains found after Titanic submersible implosion that killed Glasgow student

Suleman Dawood, a 19-year-old Strathclyde student, was amongst those who lost their lives


Coastguards confirm that human remains have been found in the wreckage of the Titanic submersible that imploded four months ago.

Among those who died was 19-year-old Suleman Dawood who was studying first year business management at Strathclyde University.

He took the trip as a Father’s Day present with his dad Shahzada Dawood. His death was met with widespread grief from the Glasgow community, with many who knew him describing him as incredibly sweet and kind. As well as messages sending thoughts and prayers to his grieving family.

Efforts have been underway in the months since the accident to retrieve the wreckage and were finally completed last Wednesday, included in this was presumed human remains, The Mirror reports.

Additional presumed human remains were recovered from within Titan’s debris and transported for analysis by U.S. medical professionals, with the salvage mission being conducted under an agreement with the U.S. Navy. This served as a follow-up to initial recovery operations on the ocean floor roughly 1,600 feet (488 meters) away from the Titanic.

Deep dives previously took place down to the wreck site 12,500 feet below the surface of the Atlantic Ocean. During these recovery missions, The Coast Guard discovered parts of the submarine, along with what is suspected to be human remains.

The Titan’s aim was to provide a one-of-a-kind experience, viewing the famous Titanic wreckage in person. The ship that was branded unsinkable but sank after hitting a large iceberg in April 1912.

The disappearance of the vessel took a global stage as a several days long search commenced. It was discovered some time later that the vestal had more than likely imploded on its decent, and there would be no survivors.

Sea Captain John Nobel spoke on the deaths of the vestal’s passengers in his heart wrenching Sky News Interview. He said the victim’s final resting place was at the bottom of the sea, with the people who died many years before in the Titanic crash. He states the most likely outcome is that they will remain there, in their final resting place and left at peace.
