Shahzada Dawood and Sulaiman Dawood, Among the five Titanic tourists trapped in the missing Titanic submarine are UK-based board member of the Prince’s Trust charity Shahzada Dawood and his 19-year-old son Sulaiman.
Shahzada Dawood, 48, and her teenage son Sulaiman Dawood were on board the small underwater craft taking paying tourists to view the famous wreck, which lies 12,500ft beneath the surface of the Atlantic Ocean, 370 miles off the coast of Newfoundland, Canada.
The pair are heirs to the great Dawood business dynasty and among the richest people in Pakistan – although they live in Surrey, England.
U.S. and Canadian ships and planes have swarmed the area about 900 miles east of Cape Cod, some dropping sonar buoys that can monitor to a depth of 13,000ft close to the Titanic.
Inside the sub, which can only be opened from the outside, are five men – some illustrious adventurers, others are among the richest in the world.
Shahzada Dawood is 40 years old, and Sulaiman Dawood is 19 years old.
