The U.S. Coast Guard says a missing submersible imploded near the wreckage of the Titanic, killing all five people on board.

Coast Guard officials said during a news conference that they've notified the families of the crew of the Titan, which has been missing since Sunday.

"The debris is consistent with the catastrophic loss of the pressure chamber," said Rear Adm. John Mauger, of the First Coast Guard District.

These are the five people aboard a submersible that went missing near the Titanic wreck.
