Titanic Survivors: 22 Shocking and Haunting Photos of What Happened After the Titanic Sank

We're all familiar with the story of the Titanic: At 11:39 p.m. on April 14, 1912, a young lookout named Frederick Fleet spotted an iceberg. His ship was headed straight for it. The Titanic made impact, and two hours and 40 minutes later, the boat was lost to the ocean forever. 2,224 people were on board. Only 700 survived. It's a tragedy that has stuck in our minds more than a century, but we're likely unfamiliar with the real faces of the people who survived it. 1. The iceberg that sank the Titanic.
