Paul-Henri Nargeolet Daughter Sidonie Nargeolet

Sidonie Nargeolet Biography – Sidonie Nargeolet Wiki

Sidonie Nargeolet is the daughter of French oceanographer Paul-Henri Nargeolet, one of five people inside a submersible missing near the Titanic wreck. She lives in the town of La Massana, Andorra.


In an interview with Reuters ahead of the announcement that the passengers on board the Titan sub are believed to be dead, Sidonie said she is comforted by the knowledge that he is in the place he loved most.

Sidonie Nargeolet told Reuters she was living with “a lot of stress, very mixed emotions” as the search for the submersible in the depths of the Atlantic Ocean entered a critical phase, with air expected to run out for the five people aboard.

“I really hope they will find them and safe. I think we have to trust what they are doing and be confident,” Nargeolet, 39, told Reuters in the town of La Massana, Andorra, where she lives.

Nargeolet said her 77-year-old father’s vast experience with submarines made him “know how to react to problems” and she was confident he was able to manage the situation well.

“He is very passionate about the Titanic since they found it 30 years ago and I know now he is at the place he would like to be.”

His daughter said she learned about the accident on Monday, when she received a text message from her father’s spouse saying he should have been back at 6 p.m. on Sunday.

“I cried a lot,” she said of her reaction to the news. She had last seen her father just before Christmas last year in Andorra.

“He sent me a message a week before (getting in the submersible) telling me the weather was bad, so they hadn’t been able to go down, but that there was a great atmosphere,” she said. “I sent him a message on Sunday for Father’s Day but he didn’t reply.”

Nargeolet said her father had made his first trip to the wreck in 1987. On one trip in another vessel operated by U.S.-based OceanGate Expeditions, he told her that he was not sure he would return safely, although he eventually did.

“He knows how to handle a crisis situation. He is prepared for it. Here, I think that with the other people he would have explained to them, therefore, to breathe gently, so that we use less oxygen. And we also knows how to reassure them, that’s very important. Maybe kick the submarine, so they can hear it,” she said.
