Coast Guard Estimates Missing Titanic Sub Has 40 Hours Of Breathable Air Left
A submersible carrying five people that went missing during a voyage to the Titanic wreckage likely has less than two days’ worth of oxygen remaining, a Coast Guard official said Tuesday afternoon.
Capt. Jamie Frederick with the Coast Guard’s 1st District provided the estimate during a press conference on the ongoing international search for the wayward vessel.
“We know there’s about 40 hours of breathable air left based on that initial report,” Frederick said.
