A submersible craft carrying Shahzada Dawood, one of the richest men in Pakistan, and his 19-year-old son Sulaiman went missing on its way to exploring the wreckage of the Titanic. The submersible, named the “Deep Explorer,” was last seen on June 21, 2023, as it was descending to the ocean floor.
Dawood and his son were part of a team of researchers who were hoping to find new artifacts from the Titanic. The Titanic sank in 1912 after striking an iceberg, and it is one of the most famous shipwrecks in history.
The search for the Deep Explorer is ongoing, and the U.S. Coast Guard is leading the effort. So far, there have been no signs of the submersible or its occupants.
Dawood is the chairman of the Dawood Group, a Pakistani conglomerate with interests in a variety of industries. He is also the founder of the Dawood Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides social services in Pakistan.
Sulaiman was a student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He was interested in engineering and technology, and he was passionate about exploring the Titanic.
The disappearance of Dawood and his son has sparked a wave of concern in Pakistan. The Pakistani government has offered a reward for information leading to the recovery of the Deep Explorer.
The search for the Deep Explorer is expected to continue for several days. The U.S. Coast Guard is using a variety of resources, including ships, helicopters, and sonar equipment.
The disappearance of the Deep Explorer is a reminder of the dangers of exploring the ocean. The Titanic is located in deep water, and the conditions can be treacherous.
The search for the Deep Explorer is ongoing, and the hope is that Dawood and his son will be found safe.
