The Rescue of the Third Class on the Titanic

This chapter discusses the time period 1:40-2:05am, from the launch of Collapsible C to the launch of Collapsible D. During this period the ship began to sink at an accelerated rate and the chances of survival dropped sharply, affecting the survival rates of the primarily third class passengers still aboard. It reiterates that OlausAbelseth’s testimony detailing a rush of third class men to overwhelm the lifeboats is inaccurate, and instead demonstrates that the rush of men arose as the boat broke up, and that there were no lifeboats in their vicinity to rush to.
