The story of the real Titanic: she was the largest, grandest ship in the world, 882 and a half ft. long. The year was 1912 and she was under Harland and Wolf of the White Star Line. Famous people had boarding passes in elaborate First Class rooms. There were second class and third class. All classes had food conditions.
On Sunday the 5th day of the journey, the Irish coast far behind, she was hit by an iceberg. Other ships had sent her warnings of icebergs earlier but they were ignored and hit the ice. Water rushed in killing workers in the mailroom (according to the latest beliefs) first. As the night grew on the thrid class were locked up, preventing any way of them to get out, survive, and have a chance of getting on the lifeboats. All passengers were warned in the beginning but few listened and thought it was a mere precaution. When they saw the water it was too late. Of the 2235 occupants, 1522 met their death in those dark waters including most of the men, most of the third class, most of the crew, and all of the band. Only 713 people were rescued.
The boats did not go back until most of the people were dead for fear of being swamped. When they went back most in the water had perished. They were infamous for the great loss of life.
