Not A Single Titanic Engineer Survived
There were 1,800 people (passengers and the ship’s crew) died in the Titanic disaster on 15 April 1912. But only few knew about 35 selfless and brave Engineers who maintained electrical power to keep the lights on throughout the ship, thereby reducing the danger of panic among the passengers.
The Engineers in the engine and boiler rooms stayed at their posts working tirelessly while everyone else was running for the lifeboats to save their own lives. Because, pumping and electricity are very important to keep the ship afloat.
They did not know if help would come and all of them were isolated from the open deck and the stars above. When the orders were came to abandon the ship, it was already too late for them. They couldn’t escape and manage to reach the surface. Sadly, none of them survived.
Rest in peace buddies! You deserve a huge respect and you’ll always be remembered.
