How the Titanic Sank
Transcript of How the Titanic Sank
The RMS Titanic, built in 1912, had its first voyage on April 10, 1912. It carried 2,224 passengers. The Titanic is easily the most popular ship ever, and was made into an extremely famous movie, which has brought in more than $1,843,201,268 worldwide.
Four days into the Voyage, the ship hit an iceberg at 11:40 pm. It gradually filled with water, as people got into life boats. Some jumped off the ship altogether. Two hours after the ship completely sank, the RMS Carpathia arrived at the scene to pick up the estimated 705 survivors. Over half of the passengers died.
The first, and only, voyage of the Titanic carried 2,224 passengers from Southampton, UK, to New York City, US. It was the largest ship in the world at that time. It also carried some of the wealthiest people in the world. However many people who were on the ship just wanted to start a new life in America. Many of those people were in third class.
The reason so many people died is simple: There wasn't enough lifeboats. In fact, there was only enough lifeboats for 1,178 people, slightly more than half of the ships population. Many of the people who died were men, because the customary "women and children first" rule was followed. Today, the Titanic is known worldwide. This popularity is partially thanks to the irony of the situation, considering the ship was dubbed "unsinkable".
