Can You Survive The Titanic
Transcript of Can You Survive The Titanic
On April 15, 1912 disaster struck. That was the day of the sinking of the Titanic. They had received 7 ice berg warnings on the day they started sailing. The first warning was Captain Smith realizing they were in ice berg waters. The other six were from other ships. http://www.teachertube.com/viewVideo.php?video_id=186541
Why Did The Titanic Sink?
How the Titanic Sank
Life Boat Problems and Loading
Many lifeboats were not filled up as full as they could have been. They were only filled up a with about 10 to 15 people when the capacity could hold 65 people in the lifeboats. Many of the people that died could have been saved.
What Would I Do
"Striking the water was like a thousand knives being driven into one's body." Survivor Charles Lightoller, the Titanic's second officer.
The reason many of the lifeboats were not full because they people on they lifeboats did not want the lifeboats too full or they would tip. Also the crew did not Know how to operate the lift that lowers the lifeboats down because they didn't get practice. There were only 14 lifeboats with 65 people in them and 4 lifeboats with 47 people. Lifeboats 7,8,9, and 10 were over 80% full.
Can You Survive The Titanic?
I believe the sinking of the Titanic was Bruce Ismay's, Captain Smith's, and the ship builder's fault.
I believe it was Bruce Ismay's fault because he was putting pressure on Captain Smith so he wouldn't slow the ship down because he wanted to be the best ship liner.
I believe that it was Captain Smith's fault because he ignored seven ice berg warnings from other ships and his own crew.
Lastly I believe that it was the ship builder's fault because they used sub-standard iron for the rivets instead of iron for the rivets.
Boom, Screech, Crash. That was the sound of the Titanic hitting the ice berg on April 15, 1912. Fredrick Fleet was the lookout that night because Captain Smith was at a dinner party. He couldn't see far because it was dark out and it was a moonless night. They tried steering away from the ice berg so the ship wouldn't hit it but it was too late, there was a big gash in the side of the ship and five of the water compartments filled so the Titanic was starting to sink.
If I were on the Titanic when it was sinking, I would try to get as many people as possible on each lifeboat and get my self on one of the lifeboats because I would want to survive but I would also try to save other people so not as many would have perished.
If I Was In Charge
What I would have done to save the ship and keep it from sinking is bring the binoculars and not forget them, also I would not have ignored the seven ice berg warnings they had received. I also would have slowed the ship down when I received the first or second warning, so then I could steer away from the ice burg in time.
Captain Edward J. Smith
Bruce Ismay- I believe he was part of the reason why the Titanic sank.
