Teenager Suleman Dawood, who died in the Titan submersible, took his Rubik’s Cube with him because he wanted to break a world record says his mother. The 19-year-old applied to the Guinness World Records and his father, Shahzada, who also died, had brought a camera to capture the moment. “He said, ‘I’m going to solve the Rubik’s Cube 3,700 metres below sea at the Titanic’.”
Speaking of her son, Mrs Dawood said Suleman loved the Rubik’s Cube so much that he carried it with him everywhere, dazzling onlookers by solving the complex puzzle in 12 seconds.
In her first interview, Mrs Dawood said she had planned to go with her husband to view the wreck of the Titanic, but the trip was cancelled because of the Covid pandemic.
“Then I stepped back and gave them space to set [Suleman] up, because he really wanted to go,” she said.
Mrs Dawood said she and her daughter will try to learn to finish the Rubik’s Cube in Suleman’s honour, and she intends to continue her husband’s work.
