Rescuers searching for lost Titanic submarine detect sounds

    As rescuers frantically search a Connecticut-sized section of the Atlantic Ocean for the missing OceanGate submarine, a Canadian aircraft with sonar capabilities detected “underwater noises in the search area,” the US Coast Guard announced via Twitter.

    The Coast Guard gave no further information about the sounds detected or how they were picked up.

    Earlier today Richard Garriott de Cayeux, president of the Explorers Club, tweeted: “We understand that probable signs of life have been detected at the site. We are hopefully waiting for good news.”

    Planes from the US and Canada have been scanning the surface for the submarine, while sonar buoys have been pinging the ocean floor.

    The Titan submarine with five high-profile tourists on board began its journey to the Titanic wreck on Sunday morning. But it lost contact with a chartered Canadian research vessel about an hour and 45 minutes into the dive. International rescue teams scramble to locate the ship before the skies run out.
