The U.S. Coast Guard is holding a press conference Sunday afternoon to discuss its response to the missing Titanic tourist submersible operated by OceanGate Expeditions.
Rear Admiral John Mauger is expected to discuss the conclusion of the search and the rescue aspects of the response and provide information on how the marine board of investigation will be conducted.
The Coast Guard’s update in the saga comes three days after debris from the Titan submersible was found roughly 1,600 feet from the Titanic in North Atlantic waters after a days-long search involving multiple agencies across three countries.
