On Wednesday, the U.S. Coast Guard announced that it had recovered debris and what are presumed to be human remains from the underwater wreckage of the Titan submersible. The Marine Board of Investigation plans to transport the evidence to the United States and facilitate further testing.
Medical professionals in the United States will investigate the "presumed human remains." The MBI will also continue collecting evidence for a public hearing.
“I am grateful for the coordinated international and interagency support to recover and preserve this vital evidence at extreme offshore distances and depths,” said MBI Chair, Captain Jason Neubauer. “The evidence will provide investigators from several international jurisdictions with critical insights into the cause of this tragedy. There is still a substantial amount of work to be done to understand the factors that led to the catastrophic loss of the TITAN and help ensure a similar tragedy does not occur again.”
