    Millionaire Adventurer Who Was Supposed to Be on Missing Titanic Sub Backed Out After Seeing Troubling ‘Risks’

    Published on

    A British millionaire who had joined up to join the missing tourists in the Atlantic Ocean ultimately decided not to join the expedition because he felt uneasy about the submarine.

    Chris Brown, 61, told the media, “I was one of the first people to sign up for this trip with OceanGate while the submersible was being developed,” the U.S. Sun reported.

    However, he added that he felt uneasy about the endeavor. The quality of the technology and materials used by OceanGate Expeditions, the company offering deep-sea visits to the Titanic’s debris, caused him to withdraw.

    Brown had initially paid a deposit for the mission to explore the famous wreck of the HMS Titanic alongside his companion Hamish Harding.

    One of his concerns was that the submersible was presumably being designed with controls “based on computer game-style controllers.”

    The submarine that was eventually constructed has vanished off the coast of Newfoundland, reported the Associated Press on Monday.

    Rescue operations have been initiated to search for the ship and its five passengers that have gone missing. Thursday will mark the end of the submersible’s oxygen supply, according to experts.

    Rescue personnel reported hearing sounds in the area being searched, but the vessel itself has not yet been located.

    “Canadian P-3 aircraft detected underwater noises in the search area. As a result, ROV operations were relocated in an attempt to explore the origin of the noises,” the First Coast Guard District said in a Twitter post on Wednesday. ROV is the acronym for “remotely operated vehicle.”

    “Those ROV searches have yielded negative results but continue. Additionally, the data from the P-3 aircraft has been shared with our U.S. Navy experts for further analysis which will be considered in future search plans,” the Coast Guard added.

    Brown may not be surprised by the problems.

    “I found out they used old scaffolding poles for the sub’s ballast — and its controls were based on computer game-style controllers,” he told the paper. “If you’re trying to build your own submarine you could probably use old scaffold poles. But this was a commercial craft.” CONTINUE READING…
