Azmeh Dawood, the aunt to the British university student, Suleman, who was killed in the tragic Titanic submarine ‘implosion,’ has revealed he was ‘terrified’ about the trip.
Suleman, 19, and his dad, Pakistani businessman Shahzada Dawood, were two of the five passengers on the OceanGate submersible, that suffered a ‘catastrophic implosion’ just 1,600ft from the bow of the Titanic.
According to Azmeh, Suleman, ‘wasn’t feeling up to it’ but joined the crew to impress his father and celebrate Father’s Day with him.
OceanGate CEO Stockton Rush, French Navy veteran Paul-Henri (PH) Nargeolet, and British billionaire Hamish Harding are among the five victims that perished on the trip.
Speaking with NBC News, Azmeh said;
“I am thinking of Suleman, who is 19, in there, just perhaps gasping for breath… It’s been crippling, to be honest.”
Suleman and other victims had been missing since Sunday. Experts say there is little chance of recovering their remains.
