Titanic Survivors

Titanic Survivors - all men. Supposedly women and children were to be placed on the boats, but if you look at the list of survivors, many men survived, whereas many women & children didn't. Bruce Ismay was not the only bad culprit who survived.

William H. Harbeck had possibly been engaged by the White Star Line to film the maiden voyage. He was supposed later to have been taken off the Titanic by a tug at Sandy Hook in order to film Titanic's arrival at the dock. He boarded the vessel at Southampton (ticket number 248746, £13). Harbeck's body was recovered, returned to his mother (Mrs. Catherine Harbeck), who administered his estate, and he was buried in his birthplace.

When the Titanic went down on April a certain W. Harbeck was on board as its official filmmaker. And with his death at age 45 (or thereabouts), one of the most industrious and promising figures in the early movie-making industry was lost.

Titanic Fact #17: The temperature of the Atlantic at the time of the sinking was 31 degrees. The low temperature was the biggest issue for the passengers in the water.

Most passengers died, not by drowning, but died before going under.of hypothermia. Titanic Fact so did they hang off things until they froze?
