It was April 10th, 1912. The British Luxury “Liner” Titanic
was sailing from Southampton to New York. The ship
weighed 46.000 tons.
There were more than 2.220 passengers. Many rich people
including the American millionaire Benjamin Guggenheim
were on board. Some poor immigrants from Ireland were
also traveling to America in search of a better life.
It was the first “journey” and
Captain Smith was sailing the
ship. It was very big and

liner was unsinkable because of
its 16 watertight
Two days later, just before midnight, the ship was traveling
too fast at a speed of 22 know. Suddenly, it “struck” an
iceberg and “punctures” five of the compartments. The
ship sank in less than three hours. Unluckily, 1.513 people
died because there weren’t enough.
