The Watson family were fortunate thanks to a family friend that they were given the opportunity to board the Titanic. Laureen and Andrew Watson felt like the luckiest people in the world.
Adversely, their luck soon ran out as the ground seemed to shudder when the Titanic collided with an iceberg. Andrew quickly sent Ronnie to a lifeboat while he ran to look for Kirby who got lost in the panic.
While the boys were on the top deck, Laureen, Marie-Claire, and Nessa were at the lower decks, trapped with a small group of people in the sinking ship, where they helped a woman there.
The woman and other people in the lower deck managed to escape, but the boxes blocking the exit trapped Laureen and she yelled for Marie-Claire and Nessa to go, and leave her behind.
Marie-Claire and Nessa run and find their dad and brother, where the woman that they previously helped was calling for them to get to their lifeboat.
They make it, and Andrew hears of Laureen's whereabouts and they find out Ronnie's lifeboat sank. They were rescued and Marie-Claire later wrote a book about the tragic event.
