Truth behind the tragic victims found on Titanic's last boat

Postby Andrew Clarkson » Thu Apr 21, 2016 9:31 am

A macabre account of how bodies of Titanic victims were found in the doomed vessel’s final missing lifeboat a month after the disaster has surfaced after 104 years.

The three male corpses were discovered in the collapsable boat 200 miles from the wreck site by the passing British liner RMS Oceanic on May 13, 1912.

The small craft was later identified as Collapsible Boat A, the last available lifeboat from the Titanic.

The boat was never launched from the ill-fated liner after it struck an iceberg and started sinking on the night of April 14, 1912.

It was washed over the side when the Titanic disappeared beneath the waves and about 30 people in the freezing water climbed on it in a desperate attempt to survive.
