The cause of the Titanic sinking was an iceberg which hit the ship at 23:40 on the 14th of April, 1912. The ship was about 375 miles south of Newfoundland in northern waters of the Atlantic. Actually, the Titanic was constructed to survive even with the four watertight compartments breached, but after the impact of the iceberg the six of them was filled with water. The ship broke apart and went under the water less than in 3 hours. The estimated outcome of the catastrophe is between 1.490 and 1.630 deaths.
