100 years ago - April 14th 1912: RMS Titanic hits an iceberg

On this day 100 years ago the largest passenger liner in the world, the RMS Titanic, hit an iceberg at 11.40pm and sank at 2.20am the next morning. As the opulent ship sank, its over two thousand passengers rushed to lifeboats; however there were not enough lifeboats on the ship so many were left behind and those who fell into the sea soon died of hypothermia. Over 1,500 people died in the tragedy, with around 700 survivors being rescued by the RMS Carpathia. The demise of the ‘unsinkable’ Titanic shocked the world, and the story continues to captivate the world.

Today, 100 years after the Titanic’s fatal collision, the ship which was once a symbol of opulence and human power, lies at the bottom of the ocean.
