According to media accounts, a seat on the sub cost $250,000 from OceanGate Expeditions. In a 2018 lawsuit, Titan’s former chief of marine operations highlighted concerns about the “experimental and untested design.” Rescuers from the US and Canada were assiduously searching the submarine that was home to five affluent individuals, who had gone to see the famous Titanic, which had sunk in 1912, on a tour.
After coming across a “debris field in the search area,” the search group lead by the rescuers called it a day on Thursday. Suleman Dawood’s father, British-Pakistani business billionaire Shahzada Dawood, also acknowledged his family’s “profound grief.”
Shahzada Dawood: who was he?
Dawood was one of Pakistan’s wealthiest individuals. He served as Vice Chairman of the Engro Corporation and a director for the Dawood Hercules Corporation. In addition, from 1996 until 2023, Dawood served as a trustee for the family organization The Dawood organization (TDF).
He graduated from Buckingham University with an LLB and Philadelphia University with an MSc in international textile marketing. After this occurrence, it has come to light that the Pakistani businessman had been involved in a terrible Aeroplan accident in 2019. He had a close call with death.
In her blog entry, Dawood and his wife Christine described a flight that changed their lives. During which the jet repeatedly fell into the storm. Her spouse was terrified for his life after this happened. “When they changed our flight and put us on the following one, I should have known.”
We ought to have accepted the advice on the sign, returned home, and enjoyed a leisurely, hearty meal. But since we didn’t. This eight became one of the most unforgettable in my life, according to Christine in a blog piece titled “Living with Anxiety” that was published on the website Next Step Now.
She went on to describe how the plane made an unusually high number of three to five dives. “The flight was uneventful for the rest of the cruise. But just as the seatbelt warning lights turned on to alert us to our imminent landing approach, the aircraft dipped sharply. My gut would later argue against the claim. A plane doesn’t fall more than three to five meters amid turbulence. According to Christine’s blog entry, the entire cabin simultaneously cried, followed by a whimper and then stillness.
Son declined to board the Titanic Submarine.
Suleman, the 19-year-old son of Dawood, was reportedly ‘terrified’ to board the Titanic sub. He didn’t want to do so, according to media sources. The 19-year-old university student was only travelling with his Titanic-obsessed father.
According to Azmeh Dawood, the older sister of Pakistani entrepreneur Shahzada Dawood, “he wasn’t very up for it.” He felt “terrified” about the journey to inspect the Titanic ruins. Amzeh said that Suleman chose to travel with his father. As he wanted to honor his father and the journey finished during Father’s Day weekend. Suleman, a 19-year-old, is inside, maybe battling for breath, and I can see him. It’s been awful, to be honest,” added Azmeh.
The countdown in this situation makes me feel as though I’ve been caught in a horrible movie; where you don’t know what you’re counting down to. Personally, I’ve finding it quite difficult to breathe when I think about them,” she continued.
The bereaved family of Suleman Dawood, a student at Glasgow University, and his father Shahzada have shared a heartfelt remembrance of the father and son who shared a love of travel and adventure.
Suleman Dawood, a student at Glasgow, and his father Shahzada have reportedly embarked on the “next leg of their spiritual journey hand-in-hand.” Suleman had recently completed his first year of university in Glasgow. And residing in London with his parents, mother Christine, and sister Alina.
They personified important teachings on the quest for knowledge. The adventure of the uncharted, and the ties of familial relationships by just being who they were with one another. The Dawood family’s family values serve as their compass. Shahzada always tried to replicate them while modelling them for his children.
The Dawood family wrote in a heartbreaking obituary that was revealed only to Glasgow Live: “With great grief, we mourn the unfortunate death of Shahzada and his beloved son, Suleman, who had set off on a quest to see the remains of the fabled Titanic in the depths of the Atlantic Ocean. We attempt to take consolation in the eternal legacy of compassion and humility. They have left behind in the face of this unimaginable catastrophe. We find peace in the knowledge that they went on to the next stage of their spiritual journey “hand-in-hand”, father and son.
He had a strong commitment to charity and volunteering. Above all, he valued individuals and the advancement of society. In addition to his drive for self-improvement, he was an ardent gardener and photographer who was constantly on the hunt for new technologies and equipment.
On this point, Shahzada was dependable. He pushed everyone around him to develop their potential by studying and doing new things to become improved versions of themselves. He had two pets, a dog named Stig and a cat named Proteus. They occasionally interfered with Shahzada’s participation in videoconference sessions. He was a passionate animal lover who was always eager to learn more about the world.
Shahzada was committed to carrying on the family’s entrepreneurial tradition by establishing companies in the technology and renewable energy sectors. He had a strong conviction that doing so would bring wealth to tens of thousands of Pakistani households. In his capacity as Engro Corporation’s Vice Chairman of the Board and one of the company’s longest serving directors, he played a crucial role in motivating the company to address significant challenges for Pakistan; his legacy will be seen in the number of public services. Engro will continue to offer in the future.
Shahzada and Suleman were adored by the entire extended family. But Christine (the wife and mother) and Alina (the daughter and sister) had a particular place in their hearts. Shahzada and Alina interacted affectionately, frequently cooked together. They frequently engaged in deep philosophical discussions about life. They truly had a father-daughter bond.
“Christine was at the hub of this family. She is holding them all together like glue, having given her all to these great people. Whom she fervently loved and guarded. All those who had the pleasure of knowing Shahzada and Suleman will feel a great loss in their absence. It is impossible to express the sorrow of the immediate Dawood family, which includes Shahzada’s siblings and their wives in addition to Christine and Alina’s parents, Hussain, and Kulsum Dawood.
“During this difficult time, we ask everyone to respect the bereaved family’s feelings and privacy as they cope with the loss of two of their most cherished members.”
