everyone
believed it.The ship left Southampton,England,on April 10,1912.she
sailed for five days on calm seas,steaming at about 26miles per hour.
pretty fast for a ship of over 46 thousand tons.On April 14,wireiess
reports from other ships warned of icebergs ahead.Actually,six rwports
came in that day.But the“unsinkable” ship steamed on.No slowing
down.There was no moon that night.At 11點40P.M.lookout Frederick
Fleet saw the iceberg and poned the bridge. A mountain of ice loomed
against the dark sky. The berg was about 100 feet hing. This means it
extended about 900 feet below the surface. The ship veered at the last
second. From above, it looked like a close shave. But the bottom a
scraping sound was heard. It took 25 minutes to assess the damage.
Water was pouring in. At 12:05,“Get the lifeboats”was ordered..0
By 2:20A.M.the ship had sunk below the surface.So there were only
about two free hours to load the lifeboats.The ship carried 2,207
people.Fully loadedthelifeboats could take only 1,178.Already there
was guaranteed doom for many. Most boats pulled away partially
loaded.Boat #1,made for 40,carried only 12.Ultimately, only 705
people survived.
Just 10 miles away was the Califoornian, stopped since 10:30P.M.
Each ship could see the other's lights. But they could not communicate.The Califoornian shut down its wireless at 11:30.The Titanic crashed 10 minutes later.Arriving after.Its cry forhelp was unheard.
The Carpathia, many miles away,heard.Arriving after four hours,it
picked up the survivors.
