Titanic was the name of a British passenger liner that sank in the Atlantic Ocean on April 15th, 1912, after colliding with an iceberg.
The ship was on its maiden voyage from England to New York City. Of more than 2,200 people on board, only about 750 survived.
The builders of the Titanic were so overconfident that they believed life boats were unnecessary. They fancied the Titanic unsinkable. This is why not enough lifeboats were installed on the ship, resulting in tragic consequences.
