Storyboard Text

  • Hi! It's me again! You may remember that we left off when the Titanic hit the huge iceberg. At 11:40 pm, people realized how badly the iceberg hit the ship. Most survivors only remember feeling a bump. The crew started sending out rocket flares, telegrams, morse code and more; no one came to help.
  • Unfortunately, there weren't enough lifeboats for all of the passengers. There were 20 lifeboats, with room for 1,178 people; there were 2,223 people on board. Some boats were launched without being full. As an example, Lifeboat 1 could hold 40 people while it only launched with 12.
  • The Titanic slipped beneath the waves just 2 hours and 40 minutes after its collision with the iceberg. While passengers in lifeboats rowed away from the disaster scene, other passengers were in the water and most died. Only 1 of the lifeboats went back to pick up more passengers.
  • At 4:00 am, the Carpathia rescued survivors on lifeboats. They were served hot cocoa and blankets as they began the long journey to New York Marina. The Titanic was fully sunk by then.
  • STATS First Class saved- 203 Second Class saved- 118 Third Class saved- 178 Crew saved- 212 Grand Total- 711
  • 5 stars out of 5! Makes me feel like I rode the Titanic.  Full of details that brings the epic event to life.
