Maltin said on BBC Breakfast, “If it’s close to the Titanic it would be easier to find but the problem is obviously you can’t make a ship-to-ship transfer even, the pressure is absolutely terrible. It’s approximately two miles below, and it’s completely dark. Therefore, I am also extremely concerned about the souls on board.

“I think they’re pretty brave people who have been down there, but they also know the risks, and no one expects it to go wrong on your watch,” he added.
