Disasters from History

"Iceberg, dead ahead!"

Justin Ordway published on

On the night of April 14, 1912 just moments before 11:40 PM eastern standard time, Titanic crow's nest lookout Frederick Fleet spots what appears to be an iceberg lying stationary in the ship's path. He signals to the ship's bridge to warn them of the berg, but ultimately his efforts are in vain. The massive ship cannot change its course in time, and she strikes the berg along her starboard side ripping a 300-foot long gash in her hull. This is the story telling of what those onboard experienced as the vessel they occupied was mortally-wounded, setting the stage for the greatest maritime disaster in recorded history.
