The world's biggest YouTuber, Jimmy "MrBeast" Donaldson, has revealed that he was meant to be on the OceanGate submersible that recently imploded, fatally wounding five passengers.

It was only a few days ago that the US Coast Guard gave the unfortunate news that OceanGate's submersible called Titan was confirmed destroyed, and the five passengers aboard were pronounced deceased.

The submersible was on its way 12,500 feet below the surface of the ocean to visit the wreckage of the iconic Titanic when communications dropped out. Recent reports indicate that shortly after the communications dropped out, a top-secret US Navy system used to detect enemy submarines detected an implosion.

Notably, communications with Titan dropped out an hour and forty-five minutes, which would put the submersible close to the sea floor. Now, MrBeast has taken to his personal Twitter account to reveal that he was invited to go on Titan but declined the offer, potentially saving his life.

It's unclear from the provided screenshot who MrBeast was messaging as in the message, it states, "I'm going to the Titanic in a submarine later this month." It's possible this screenshot is from someone else that MrBeast was communicating with.

"The debris is consistent with the catastrophic loss of the pressure chamber," Rear Admiral John Mauger, of the First Coast Guard District, told reporters. "Our most heartfelt condolences go out to the loved ones of the crew."

"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," OceanGate wrote in a statement. "These men were true explorers who shared a distinct spirit of adventure, and a deep passion for exploring and protecting the world's oceans."
