When Titanic actually hit the iceberg, it doesn't seem as if anyone really panicked. The extent of the damage was not immediately known, many people were asleep, and the… prevailing confidence in the unsinkable nature of the ship meant that the gravity of the situation was not realized until nearer the end for the passengers and even for some of the crew. Also, there was seen to be a ship in the area - the identity of which has been long disputed - and many believed it would come to their aid. There was some panic as the situation became obviously hopeless at the end and there were no lifeboats left. Also, as the later lifeboats were loaded, there were attempts by some men to push in ahead of the women and children or to jump in as the boats were lowered past other decks. One of the officers found it necessary to fire shots to deter such behavior. The great majority of those left behind seemed to have met their end with remarkable resignation and calm considering the horror of the situation.
About 7/8ths of any iceberg is below the water line. The iceberg that did in Titanic was determined to be about 96 feetabove sea level.
2200 people on board and about 700 survived.
they were jumping into action, try to find their family, they were sticking their hand through the doors to unlock the doors
The iceberg hit the starboard side near the bow of Titanic (andthere is a good case for "grounding" which means additionalbreaching on the bottom of the ship). Titanic sank at… 2:20 am in the morning. There were 712 survivors of Titanic.
At the moment of impact - none. later that night - about 1500.
um they crashed and tipped over !!!!!!!!
Just BEFORE midnight, at about 11.50pm.
Most definitely without a doubt, Titanic struck the stationaryiceberg at about 25 mph.
Remembering that only about a tenth of any iceberg is above thewater, Titanic's berg was about 96 feet above sea level.
When Titanic hit into the iceberg, most people went to the upperdecks.
The Atlantic Ocean, in route from England on its maiden voyage
some did and some didnt
they thought they were going to die
They sent only women and children on the life boats and left the men to die. Others that stayed in the ship read their kids to sleep knowing they were going to die.
Yes 1,517 people died the night the Titanic hit the iceberg and the captain died as well.
