Unless you’re living a Unabomber style life, you’re likely aware of the recent incident involving OceanGate’s lost submarine carrying five wealthy individuals on a mission to explore the wreckage of the Titanic.
The submarine set off on its journey early Sunday morning but soon lost contact with its surface ship, leading to its disappearance. Coincidentally, around the same time, an underwater videographer named Abbi Jackson posted a TikTok video from a ship in the North Atlantic Ocean, captioned “Watching a submarine go down to the Titanic.”
With over 16.2 million views, the video has sparked intense speculation about whether it was a macabre coincidence, a deliberate hoax, or simply terrible timing. It appears that the latter is the case.

Abbi’s social media accounts have gone quiet since the video was posted two days ago, but she has not removed it at the time of writing. In her previous videos, she can be seen wearing an OceanGate life vest and capturing footage of a man who bears a resemblance to Paul-Henry Nargeolet. Nargeolet, a former French Navy diver and Titanic enthusiast who has visited the wreckage 37 times, is feared to be among those aboard the missing submersible.
Furthermore, Abbi’s Instagram profile confirms that she works for OceanGate, the company responsible for organizing the expedition.
Videos capturing moments just before disasters always provoke shock, but this particular one seems incredibly improbable. As Molly Seger jokingly remarked, “Girl, did you not keep your eye on it?”
This incident has captured significant attention due to its unusual circumstances, and people are closely following any updates or developments regarding the missing submarine and its occupants.
