Here are some of the reactions from netizens.

Try as I may, I haven’t been able to avoid the tragic Titanic submarine story. Now I’m doubly saddened by the fact that while they’re estimated to be stranded 13,000 ft below the surface, 10+ years ago James Cameron successfully took a sub down and back 35,000 feet. The machinery of the current stranded sub ignored science, established best practices and common sense. Bad engineering at its worst. That said, regardless of what type of people chose to explore in this way, I imagine there is unimaginable pain for some who love them and I try to remain sensitive to that fact.
