Submarino que levava turistas aos destroços do Titanic desaparece no Atlântico

A Guarda Costeira dos EUA lançou uma operação de busca e salvamento, nesta segunda-feira (19), para um submarino que desapareceu com cinco pessoas a bordo em uma expedição aos destroços do Titanic.

As autoridades receberam um telefonema no domingo informando que o navio de pesquisa canadense Polar Prince havia perdido contato com o navio submersível e estava atrasado na verificação de suas comunicações, de acordo com a porta-voz da Guarda Costeira, tenente Samantha Corcoran.

“No momento, estamos apenas tentando usar todos os esforços e trabalhar com parceiros internacionais para tentar obter recursos para localizar com segurança todos os cinco indivíduos”, disse ela.

O submersível desaparecido perdeu contato 1 hora e 45 minutos após a descida, disse a Guarda Costeira.

A empresa que conduz a viagem, Oceangate Expeditions, disse que está “explorando e mobilizando todas as opções para trazer a tripulação de volta com segurança”.

“Todo o nosso foco está nos tripulantes do veículo submersível e suas famílias. Estamos profundamente gratos pela extensa assistência que recebemos de várias agências governamentais e empresas de alto mar em nossos esforços para restabelecer o contato com o submersível”, disse o grupo.

O Titanic atingiu um iceberg em sua viagem inaugural e afundou no Oceano Atlântico Norte em abril de 1912, matando mais de 1.500 pessoas. Os destroços do Titanic, descobertos em 1985, estão divididos em duas partes no fundo do oceano, cerca de 13.000 pés abaixo da superfície, a sudeste da província canadense de Newfoundland.

Mais recentemente, passeios privados caros foram oferecidos aos turistas, permitindo que as pessoas vissem os destroços de perto.

Uma versão arquivada do site da OceanGate, acessível por meio do Wayback Machine, mostra o que os passageiros podem gastar até US$ 250 mil na viagem, equivalentes a R$ 1,192 milhão.

“Siga os passos de Jacques Cousteau e torne-se um explorador subaquático — começando com um mergulho nos destroços do RMS Titanic. Esta é sua chance de sair da vida cotidiana e descobrir algo verdadeiramente extraordinário”, diz o site.

“Torne-se um dos poucos a ver o Titanic com seus próprios olhos”, acrescenta.

A expedição de oito dias é baseada na cidade de St. John’s, Newfoundland. A viagem começa com uma jornada de 400 milhas náuticas até o local do naufrágio.

Lá, até cinco pessoas, incluindo um piloto, um “especialista em conteúdo” e três passageiros pagantes, embarcam no submersível “Titan” e descem até o fundo do oceano.

“Assim que o submersível for lançado, você começará a ver formas de vida zunindo pela janela de visualização enquanto você afunda cada vez mais fundo no oceano. A descida leva aproximadamente duas horas, mas parece um piscar de olhos”, disse o site.
