Titanic went under water today - level 2, A12
Titanic was one of the three big ships which were made at the beginning of 20th century. It took two years to make this ship. Titanic started its way from Southampton and went under water on 15th April 1912.
The ship was 269 metres long and 28 metre wide. 885 people worked on the ship. People thought that it wasn’t possible for the ship to go under water. This idea had catastrophic results. When the ship hit the ice in sea and started to go down, there weren’t many small ships for all the passengers. Titanic had 2223 people on board and there were only 1178 places in all the small ships. Thanks to this and other big mistakes 1517 people died in the Atlantic.
The other two gigantic ships Olympic and Gigantic were also destroyed. It’s unbelievable but there is one lady Violet Jessop who survived all the catastrophes. She worked for the ship company and she always got out in a small ship.
You can see the ship in the video.
