The US Coast Guard confirmed that a catastrophic implosion took place aboard the Oceangate Titan Submersible, killing all five members on board.

Reportedly, five different pieces of the 22-foot submersible were discovered on the ocean floor some 1,600 feet below the bow of the Titanic, the debris consisting with a "catastrophic loss of the pressure chamber."

“Right now, again our thoughts are with the families and making sure that they have an understanding as best as we can provide of what happened and begin to find some closure,” an unnamed official said during the press conference, according to USA Today.

A viral video viewed over 3 million times on TikTok alone shows an expert's recreation of what the sub would have looked like during the implosion, and you can see just how quickly the passengers aboard perished.


The video explains that the the speed the submersible would've imploded would've been 30 milliseconds (0.03 seconds).

The average time for pain processing for a human being is 60 milliseconds (0.06 seconds), so at the very least, those aboard didn't suffer.

Just to put this in perspective, your average blink is 100 milliseconds (0.1 seconds).
