A Short Note on Titanic

A Short Note on Titanic

It was on April 10, 1912; the Titanic was sailing for New York from Southampton. At that time she was the largest ship in the world built in a very special way. So she was regarded as unsinkable. At that moment the Titanic was sailing across the icy waters of the North Atlantic. She was carrying 1316 passengers and a crew of 891. Four days after setting out, a great disaster happened. At one moment a huge ice berg was spotted very close to the ship. The great ship turned sharply to avoid a collision. Suddenly there was a slight trembling sound from below. The alarm had been given. The captain went down to see what had happened. Five of the ships sixteen water tight compartments were totally damaged by the collision. So the captain realized to his horror that the Titanic was sinking rapidly.
