WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – The US Coast Guard has asked the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) to assist in the investigation into the implosion of the submersible Titan, US media reported on Friday.

The NTSB’s Office of Marine Safety, in conjunction with the Coast Guard, will attempt to find the potential cause of the deep-sea catastrophe, media said, though the US Coast Guard will lead the investigation, which has been called a major marine casualty.

The Canadian government also launched its own investigation into the incident on Friday, as Titan’s support vessel was the Canadian-flagged Polar Prince.

On Sunday, the OceanGate submersible, Titan, went missing during an expedition to the Titanic wreckage in an area about 900 miles east of Cape Cod in the North Atlantic, at a depth of approximately 13,000 feet.

What Could Have Caused the Titan Sub Tragedy?

The US Coast Guard (USCG) confirmed on Thursday debris found on the ocean floor near the Titanic wreckage consisted of pieces of the missing submersible. All five people on board the Titan are presumed dead.

Hours after the USCG confirmed the submersible’s implosion, reports surfaced detailing the US Navy detected the implosion hours into the Titan’s mission. Although the specific’s of the instrument were not laid out, it was described as a top secret underwater acoustic system.
