Sinking of the Titanic

the sinking of the RMS Titanic details the events of the night of Sunday 14 April 1912, and into the early hours of the following day, which saw the loss of the ocean liner Titanic, one of the worst peacetime maritime disasters in history. At the time of the disaster, Titanic was approximately two-thirds of the way through her Atlantic crossing bound for New York, having left Queenstown, Ireland, on 11 April. On the night of the sinking, at 23:40, Titanic struck an iceberg. Just after midnight, preparations for evacuation began. Two and a half hours later, Titanic finally submerged. It was not until 04:00 that the first rescue occurred, with the arrival of the Carpathia.
