Who is Shahzada Dawood’s wife, Christine?
Shahzada, a Pakistani tycoon, is married to Christine Dawood, a coach and psychologist. She holds two master’s degrees, one in Occupational and Business Psychology and the other in Consulting and Coaching for Change.
Christine, who was born in Germany, abandoned her engineering job after being engaged in a near-fatal plane crash with her husband in 2019.
Christine wrote on her blog, “I’ve read many times that people begin to pray in such situations or that their life flashes by like a movie.”
“My husband later told me that he was thinking about all of the opportunities he’d missed and how much he still wanted to teach our children.”
Christine lived in Surbiton, Surrey, with her husband Shahzada. On June 22, 2023, he was reported dead, only four days after heading off on the Titan sub with his son Suleman.
Who are Shahzada Dawood’s children, Suleman and Alina?
Alina and Suleman are Shahzada and Christine’s two children. Suleman was born in Karachi, Pakistan, in 2004. He is a business student at the University of Strathclyde.
“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,” said university president Sir Jim McDonald.
“We are deeply concerned about Suleman, his father, and others involved in this incident.”I am confident that you will join me in offering our condolences and prayers to their families and loved ones. Suleman’s older sister is Alina.
At university, she studied English literature and received honors and various accolades for her academic achievements. Alina and Suleman were raised in both London and Karachi in Pakistan.
What happened to Shahzada and Suleman Dawood?
Shahzada and his son Suleman were among the five people on the small sub traveling to the Titanic’s wreckage. On Sunday, June 18, 2023, the father and son boarded the Titan mini-sub alongside Hamish Harding, Stockton Rush, and Paul Henry Nargeolet.
Azmeh Dawood, Shahzada’s sister, stated that the youngster was “terrified” of going on the trip. Only one hour and 45 minutes into the trip, the Titan lost contact with the mothership Polar Prince.
Rescue teams, including two remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), were sent to investigate the water surface and depths near the Titanic debris. Even though there were reports of banging on Tuesday, June 20, 2023, debris was discovered two days later.
On Thursday, June 22, OceanGate Expeditions confirmed in a statement that the five people on board the submersible were presumed deceased.
“We now believe that our CEO Stockton Rush, Shahzada Dawood and his son Suleman Dawood, Hamish Harding, and Paul-Henri Nargeolet have sadly been lost,” the business wrote.
“This was a catastrophic implosion of the vessel, which would have generated a significant broadband sound down there that the sonar buoys would have picked up,” Rear Admiral John Mauger said at a press briefing.
According to the US Coast Guard, debris was discovered on the ocean floor that was “consistent with the catastrophic event.” They said they would continue to investigate the scene.
