Hitting the iceberg
HITTING THE ICEBERG: at 11:40pm on the 14th April 1912, the lookout spotted an iceberg.
William Murcdock ordered the ship to be steered around the iceberg but it was too late; the starboard side of Titanic struck the iceberg
DAMAGE: Five of the ship's watertight compartments were breached. (It soon became clear that the ship was doomed, as she could not survive more than four compartments being flooded.)
Distress signals where sent by: ROCKET, WIRELESS and LAMPS.
A nearby ship, the Californian, which was the last to have been in contact with her before the collision, saw her flares but failed to assist.
Around 4 am, Carpathia arrived on the scene in response to Titanic's earlier distress calls.
Figures about the Sinking.
710 people survived the disaster and were taken by the Carpathia to New York, Titanic's original destination,
1,514 people lost their lives
