Mid-Hudson News reports that the pilot of the mini submarine that imploded while diving to the Titanic wreckage was from Dutchess County. Paul-Henri Nargeolet, 77, known as “Mr. Titanic,” died with four others in the incident. In January of 2022, he moved from the Town of Kent in neighboring Connecticut, buying for $1.5 million a home on 2.75 acres on Route 292 in the Pawling hamlet of Holmes in Dutchess County. Nargeolet was also part of the first expedition that reached the Titanic wreckage in 1987. The Titanic sunk in 1912, and debris thought to be from the submarine were found approximately 1,600 feet from the bow of the Titanic. Read more about this story at Mid-Hudson News.
