The senator representing Delta north, Ned Nwoko, has claimed that he was supposed to join the men who died in an underwater excursion to see the Titanic wreck.
Nwoko revealed this in an Instagram post on Friday.
He mourned Hamish Harding, a British businessman and his friend, who was among the five passengers aboard Titan, the missing submersible.
The US Coast Guard (USCG) reported that the men died from a “catastrophic implosion” after debris believed to be from Titan was found near the Titanic, four days after its disappearance.
Nwoko stated that he was unable to make the trip because of national duties.
“We both went on a very dangerous expedition to Southpole Antarctica a few years back. He was a gulf stream pilot who flew across the world in a record-breaking Guinness world record for circumnavigation of the earth some years ago,” Nwoko
