Default A near-miss - he was almost on the now-missing sub...

I don't know if you read this story...

One guy - Chris Brown - was booked to go down to see the Titanic wreckage, on the now-missing small submarine, called the "Titan"...

But - he got uncomfortable. He felt the company was "cutting too many corners"... and pulled out of the trip, after he had already paid the deposit.

Very close call...

I'm hoping they'll find the sub, and be able to rescue the people (if they're still alive). It must be an absolutely terrible place to be...

I've never been in any kind of similar situation. Gordon was on a submarine back in his Navy days... But this submarine is extremely tiny - it has only 8 feet of space... with 5 adults crammed into that space...

Scary stuff...

Here's the story about Chris Brown's near-miss...

SUB SAFETY FEARS: I signed up to go on missing Titanic submarine but pulled out after questioning if crew were ‘cutting too many corners’

In some of the descriptions you read, it sounds like the Titan is held together by Scotch tape and string...

SUICIDE DIVE: I went on creaky Titanic sub – it felt like suicide mission with vessel held together by zip-ties and blighted by faults

Hopefully they can get these people out alive...

Best wishes,

Dien
