OceanGate's CEO Told Passengers To Go To Sleep After Sub Battery Died Two Hours Into Dive

Videographer Jaden Pan traveled on board the Titan submersible in 2022. While speaking on the BBC, he revealed that the battery on the sub died two hours into the trip, and OceanGate CEO Stockton Rush told Jaden and the rest of the crew to go to sleep to get through the next 24 hours.
Jaden shared that the sub was about two football fields from the Titanic wreckage when the battery died.

He said: "At first, I thought he was joking because we were over two hours into our expedition and so close to the bottom. But then he explained that one of the batteries went kaput and we were having trouble using the electronic drops for the weights, so it would be hard for us to get back up to the surface."

The first plan was for passengers to sleep so that the weights attached to the Titan would dissolve, which takes 24 hours. Half the people on board were good with the plan, but the other half were not.

Eventually, Stockton was able to use hydraulics to drop the weights and the sub made it safely back up to the surface.
