Businessman and his son, Shahzada and Suleman Dawood; British businessman Hamish Harding; French diver Paul-Henri Nargeolet; and Stockton Rush, the CEO of the vessel’s operator, OceanGate Expeditions all died after the submersible imploded around an hour and 45 minutes into its dive.
Mr Cassano recalled the time efforts to find the submarine turned into a recovery operation rather than a rescue.
Debris from the submersible was found around 1,600ft from the wreckage of the Titanic, leading experts to the conclusion that those on board had not survived.
Ms Cassano said: “Shortly after arriving on the seafloor, we discovered the debris of the Titan submersible…by 12 o’clock, a rescue turned into a recovery.”
