News comes on the day it became known that the operator had already had a scare with the Titan on one of the trips to the Titanic. Renata Rojas, a Mexican diver who was on the submersible at the time, told the BBC: “I thought, ‘We’re not going to make it’. We’re literally 300 meters away from the Titanic and we can’t go anywhere but go around in circles.”

The company that operated the submersible Titan, which imploded during the voyage to the wreckage of the Titanic, announced this Thursday that it has stopped all activities indefinitely.
