A Titanic Survivor Says the Ship Did Not Sink Because Of an Iceberg
9He was pushed off a lifeboat
He soon found a boat but when he went to cling to it, he felt oars hitting his hand and voices screaming in English. Well, the incident of the Titanic is a fine example of humanity at its worst when it comes to survival. When he was found by the Carpathia, he said many survivors were al hung upside down like carcasses for the water to drip out of their mouths.
10Other experts provide similar theories
Major Arthur G Peuchen a first-class passenger aboard the Titanic also claims that he definitely heard an explosion after which the ship started to sink. A steward George Fredrick Crowe who commanded a lifeboat reported that there was an explosion after which the aft had turned on its end and sunk. Researchers’ claim that while passengers could have survived; the Titanic indeed sank after an explosion.
11What could have really happened, the scientific viewpoint
In his book, Titanic “The Hidden Evidence”, John Wickman said that the engineers on the ship could not have had the knowledge that electrolysis could convert seawater into explosive hydrogen gas. He says that they made a mistake and kept lights resulting in the explosions. If that had not happened, the Titanic would not have sunk and passengers would have been saved.
12Negligence, fire and ice
Wickman is of the opinion that the first explosions occurred between 1:10 and 1: 20 am. After that, he said there was a second explosion and it was that which split the ship in half the major reason for the disaster. Journalist Senan Molony also spent thirty years researching the Titanic disaster and concluded that it was fire, ice and human negligence.
13Passengers describe two explosions
Wickman believes that the first explosion happened between 1:10 and 1:20 AM. But he said there was another explosion that split the ship in half and that was the reason for the catastrophe. Many other experts say that a fire broke out in the third storey fuel store which was just behind one of the boiler rooms. Passengers who survived said they had heard a tearing sound and son after the ship began flooding instantly.
The above opinions and theories are too convincing to debunk totally however the official version remains that the Titanic was hit by an iceberg and that’s why she sank.
