Now I want to tell you something about the history of the ship TITANIC:
The RMS Titanic was constructed in 1908 in Belfast by Andrews (RMS means Royal Mail Ship.
The construction lasted 4 years
The Titanic was one of the biggest passenger ships, it could take 2.207 people and had a longitude of 269 meters and was 28 meters wide the weight of the ship was 45000 tones and from the waterline to the deck it was 18 meters high
The captain was Edward John Smith
The Titanic was the most luxuries ship in this time and was called unsinkable; it was also called the ship of the dreams.
The first class was very luxurious, the second class was more comfortable than the first class of other ships and the third class was very simply equipped
On the 10th of April 1912 the Titanic left Southampton for her maiden voyage to New York.
Many Passengers wanted to start a new and better life in New York
885 of the 2207 people abroad the ship were crew members
The Titanic received several ice warnings on the 14th of April, but this didn’t hold them to reduce the speed
At 11.40 PM they crashed into a iceberg
The ship started to fill with water
The crew started to broadcast S.O.S and the Carpathian reacts to the emergency call and raced at full speed to the Titanic but the way took 4 hours
Panic broke out and everything got out of control
The lifeboats reached only for half of the passengers
The lifeboats should be taken with 64 people but in most boats sat only 32 and in one just 12 passengers
After 3 terrible hours full of panic and screaming people the titanic sank
They have saved only 700 people, primarily women and children of the first class
1500 people fell in the cold North Atlantic and died a cruel death, they were frostbitten
Most passengers who had died were from the third class even the captain he didn’t want to leave the ship
