Human Remains May Be on Titanic

A newly released photograph of Titanic’s wreck suggests human remains may be embedded in the mud where the ship sank. The 2004 photograph shows a coat and boots in the mud at site. Most who have explored the wreck suggested that there are no human remains left, just clothes. But James Delgado, an official at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, explained that the photo does show remains, and that it is a question of “semantics.” He said, “I as an archaeologist would say those are human remains. Buried in that sediment are very likely forensic remains of that person.”
