At 2.20am on April 15th 1912, RMS Titianic slipped beneath the waves of the ocean taking many people with her. People had evacuated in lifeboats, and at around 4.00am the Carpathia reached the site of the disaster and started to pick up survivors.
News had reached New York, and initial reports stated that the Titanic was damaged but would return to New York as planned. Later on, the news came through that the Titanic had sunk causing over 1,500 people to lose their lives.
All of this happened 104 years ago today.
RIP Titanic victims.
