Senator Ned Nwoko of Delta North revealed how he avoided death by not accompanying the men who died in an undersea expedition to see the Titanic Shipwreck. The Billionaire revealed this in an Instagram post on Friday.
While mourning Hamish Harding, a British businessman and his companion died aboard the Titan submersible, along with three other passengers (total of five) aboard Titan, the missing submarine.
Nwoko posted images of himself with the late pilot while on an adventure to Antarctica.
“I have lost a very dear friend and business partner. Captain Hermish Harding. We both went on a very dangerous expedition to the Southpole Antarctica few years back.
“He was a gulf stream pilot who flew across the world in a record-breaking expedition by Guinness world record for circumnavigation of the earth some years ago.
“He descended into the Mariana. he also invited me on his space shuttle last year and this very Titan ill-fated adventure, but I was tied down with national duties.
“Above all he was a partner on the various researches into eradication of malaria in Africa project.
“He was very enthusiastic about it and always gave his support at every given opportunity. His last message to me was this last Sunday when he told me they were ready to dive to the titanic if the weather permits.
“He loved adventure and challenges. My heart bleeds for his dear wife and kids who have become family friends over the years. We will surely miss his wealth of experience,” he wrote alongside the photo.
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.
