‘Presumed human remains’ found in wreckage of Titan sub

Presumed human remains have been recovered from the wreckage of the Titan submersible, the US Coast Guard have said.

It comes after debris from the craft was brought ashore earlier on Wednesday.

Five men died, including three British citizens, when the submersible is believed to have suffered a catastrophic implosion while attempting to view the wreck of the Titanic.

In a statement, the US Coast Guard said: “United States medical professionals will conduct a formal analysis of presumed human remains that have been carefully recovered within the wreckage at the site of the incident.”

At a previous news conference on Sunday, officials said investigators looking into the tragedy had been “taking all precautions” in case they found bodies on the sea floor.
