  • Launching Ships
  • Refusing to steer Away
  • Explosion of ships!
  • Taking place on the Halifax Harbour, a French Cargo Ship carrying explosives, and the Norwegian vessel, unladen both sail into Canada grounds on December 6th, 1917.
  • The French ship "Mont-Blanc", and Norwegian vessel "Imo" sail closer into the Narrow of the connecting strait. Investigators say that both captains were to stubborn to admit the caution of not moving out of the way of the other ship, where the load of explosives hinted towards big danger.
  • The two big ships continue to sail into the narrow passage of the waters, thinking the other ship must turn away. Then before either of them could have a chance to steer in a different direction, - the ships crash together. The huge explosion left 2,000 killed and about 9,000 people injured from far surrounding communities!
