Being trapped inside a 22-foot (6.7-meter) submarine, thousands of feet underwater, in danger of running out of oxygen, is incredibly distressing and terrifying.

Search and rescue teams are still trying to find the missing submarine “Titan” during a diving trip to see the Titanic wreck, while the circumstances surrounding their crew of five remain shrouded in mystery.

It is believed that the submarine and its crew will have less than 10 hours until their remaining oxygen levels run out, prompting search and rescue operations to race against time to locate the submarine before it is too late.

Ken Leeds, a hyperbaric medicine expert at Memorial University in St. John’s, Newfoundland, in eastern Canada, told BBC News that air wasn’t the only danger crews faced on board.
