Titan sub's ex-passenger was told he could be crushed like a soda can


Passenger reveals harrowing details of Titanic   expedition: extreme water pressure compared to a sledgehammer crushing a can.

The ill-fated Titanic expedition, a passenger who embarked on a dive to the historic shipwreck aboard the Titan submersible has revealed harrowing details about the extreme water pressure of the deep ocean. Bill Price, a retiree from California, shared the crew's chilling description of what it would be like to be crushed under the immense pressure, comparing it to a sledgehammer demolishing a soda can. Other analogies depicted the force as an elephant trying to balance on one foot, with an additional hundred elephants piled on top. The implications were clear: death would be instantaneous.

Price's experience, shared with the New York Times, sheds light on the tragic events that unfolded during the OceanGate expedition, which ultimately claimed the lives of the entire five-member crew. Last month, the U.S. Coast Guard confirmed that the sub suffered a "catastrophic loss of pressure" and imploded while descending to the Titanic wreckage in the North Atlantic Ocean. Debris from the sub, along with presumed human remains, was recovered in the aftermath

The incident has sparked outrage and raised serious concerns regarding the design and operation of the ill-fated Titan submersible. Experts in deep-sea expeditions have criticized OceanGate CEO Stockton Rush, who tragically lost his life during the dive, for dismissing their concerns about the sub's design. It was revealed that the sub was not reviewed for compliance with industry standards by an independent body, a fact that has raised eyebrows.
