Meet Alina Dawood, Shahzada Dawood Daughter
Late Pakistani-British businessman Shahzada Dawood was a father of two children. The family of four included his wife and his two children Suleman and Alina Dawood. Sadly, Shahzada and Suleman were two of the five missing individuals who were on board the Titanic-bound submersible. Passengers paid OceanGate up to $250,000 to see the remains up close.
The Titan set off from St. John’s on the coast of Newfoundland on 16 June 2023. The sub was planned to go 370 miles from the harbor to the Atlantic, where the Titanic is thought to be submerged at a depth of 12,500 feet. Billionaire explorer Hamish Harding informed his buddy and former NASA astronaut Col. Terry Virts of bad weather one day before the launch in a message.
According to Hamish’s article, the Titan’s crew intended to begin the Titan’s drop to the disaster at 4 a.m. ET on Sunday. The US Coast Guard, however, ultimately discovered that the two-hour dive actually began around 8 a.m. Around 9:45 a.m., the submersible lost contact with its surface ship, the Polar Prince, according to the Coast Guard.
A submersible, unlike a submarine, needs its mothership to launch and surface. The Titan lost contact, effectively becoming lost with no method to determine its own whereabouts.
Family and friends sent their prayers to the departed souls and grieving family members that included Alina. Several reports suggested that Alina allegedly opened up about her brother’s death stating that Suleman did not want to go on the submersible but he did it to make their father happy on Father’s Day.
As for her brother Suleman, he was 19 years old. Suleman (Sulaiman) had just finished his first year at the university’s business school at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow. Reportedly, he just received his diploma from Surrey’s ACS International School Cobham.
The university’s principal and vice-chancellor, Prof Sir Jim McDonald, wrote to students to inform them that Suleman was in the missing sub. In the message, Prof. McDonald said: “I write to you with a heavy heart to share the news that one of our students, Suleman Dawood, is a passenger on board the submersible that is missing in the North Atlantic. I know you will join me in sending our thoughts and prayers to their families and loved ones.”
