A YouTuber says he rode in the Titan submersible just days before it went missing.
His footage shows OceanGate CEO Stockton Rush discussing issues with the sub's "life support" system.
Jake Koehler says in the video that the sub had issues "every day" during his trip.
A YouTuber who rode inside the Titan submersible just days before it went missing shared footage of his nine-day excursion in the Atlantic Ocean, which included OceanGate CEO Stockton Rush expressing concern over issues with the sub's control systems.
Jake Koehler posted the nearly 30-minute video to his YouTube channel DALLMYD on Friday. Koehler's channel has more than 13 million subscribers and typically features videos of himself finding lost items while diving.
The video chronicles Koehler's journey to St. John's in Newfoundland, Canada, where he joined the Titan submersible for its third mission. The submersible went missing during its fifth mission on June 18. The US Navy later confirmed that the sub imploded shortly after it started its descent.
British businessmen Hamish Harding and Shahzada Dawood, Dawood's son Suleman, Titanic expert Paul-Henri Nargeolet, and OceanGate CEO Stockton Rush were all killed in the implosion.
Koehler showed footage of Nargeolet and Rush in his video but said he removed some footage given the circumstances of their deaths.
In his video, Koehler said that at one point they had to take the submersible to a nearby cove to do repairs before heading out to sea.
"We're mission number three. But the first two missions they weren't able to dive down to the Titanic due to weather conditions. And, also, the Titan the submarine, I guess something happened when they were towing it back. A ghost net got wrapped around it, broke a lot of stuff," Koehler says in the video. "They're just double-checking everything right now, making sure everything's safe."
Before heading out to sea for their dive, OceanGate planned to do an "engineering dive," but Rush decided to call it off because the sub was having issues with functionality and the weather conditions were bad, an OceanGate official says in the video.
Rush, debriefing the crew on why he called off the dive, said something "just didn't seem quite right" with the submersible's control system, which he called the "brains" of the sub.
"That's why I called it, but mostly because we've got to find out what this control problem is that sort of important controlling the sub," Rush says in the video. "It's up there with life support."
The problem, Rush said, is that two "control pods" on top of the sub were not "consistently communicating."
Koehler cuts the video after Rush's comments. Koehler says he wasn't sure if the control pods issue was the same issue that later caused the Titan's catastrophic implosion.
"Your guess is as good as mine," Koehler said.
"It could have been anything," Koehler continued. "Long story short, every day they did have some problems, and we tried to fix every little thing to make sure everything was perfect for our opportunity to dive to the Titanic."
Koehler added that the issues with the sub "seem weird now," but at the time they seemed like an "everyday thing."
Luckily for Koehler, his trip to the Titanic — which is more than 12,000 feet below the surface of the ocean — didn't happen. But he did still get to take a test dive to a depth of about 30 feet.
"I would have been in that submarine, and my fate could have been just like the five who lost their lives just recently on mission five," Koehler said.
