Frederick Flet , in the crow's nest, was the first person to see the iceberg. At first Frederick thought the
tiny ice berg was nothing to fret about, but as the ship came closer he realized his little ice cube was a huge ice berg. As he rang the warning bell but Fredrick knew it was to late. Panic fell over the ship. As the Titanic hit the ice burg it nearly split in half. 199 first class passengers lived, 119 second class passengers lived, 174 third class passengers lived, and 214 crew members lived. But only 705 passengers and crew were rescued. 1523 passengers and crew drowned or froze to death 130 first class passengers died, 166 second class passengers died, 536 third class passengers died, and 685 crew members died.
|Scientist later learned that 90% of the ice
burg was really under water. Scientist later realized that there was a
layer of ice behind the one that sunk the Titanic. Even if they had time
to turn around
the ship's rear would have hit the layer of ice. The Titanic was the biggest ship of her day and the biggest ship to crash.
