MrBeast has posted a message he says was an invitation to be on board the OceanGate submersible, which was destroyed last week while on its way to the wreck of the Titanic.

The Titan submersible was deemed to have suffered a 'catastrophic implosion' with the loss of life of all five people on board.

While search and rescue attempts have found some debris from the wreckage and intend to study it as part of the investigation to determine exactly what went wrong the chances of recovering the remains of any of the passengers is unlikely.

Attempting to recover the bodies is seen as too risky and given how they died, it's possible that there just wouldn't be anything left to recover.

While investigators work to zero-in on the truth of what happened to OceanGate CEO Stockton Rush, British billionaire Hamish Harding, French diver Paul-Henry Nargeolet, and father and son Shahzada and Suleman Dawood, others have revealed they were very nearly on board the sub themselves.

One of these is popular YouTuber MrBeast, who today (25 June) posted a partial screenshot of a message he received inviting him on board the doomed OceanGate sub.

The message was from someone who said they'd be 'going to the Titanic in a submarine late this month' and invited him along to share in the experience.

MrBeast said it was 'kind of scary that I could have been on it' as had he said yes to the offer he'd have been dead along with the rest of the submersible's passengers.

The YouTuber isn't the only one who could have been lost along with the five passengers of the Titan sub who perished after the 'catastrophic implosion' it suffered from.

Since the sub disappeared, several others have come forward to say they too had the opportunity to journey to the wreck of the Titanic with OceanGate.

A common theme among those who were given the chance to board the OceanGate submersible and declined to do so is concerns about the safety of the vessel.

Multiple potential passengers decided against taking the trip because they were unsure of how safe it would be.

Anyone taking the trip had to sign a waiver which acknowledged multiple times that they might die in the process of their journey.

Others who had been on an OceanGate sub before have also shared their stories, speaking about concerns over how safe they'd been down in the ocean.
