When the Titanic sank, it dropped more than 2.5 miles to the ocean floor. There were only 16 lifeboats on board, instead of the 64 lifeboats that were part of the ship’s original design, but later eliminated to save space. Each lifeboat was designed to hold 65 people, but the first lifeboats went out only partially loaded. To save money, shipbuilders had used cheaper rivets, which helped lead to the destruction. 1,517 people died on the Titanic. 705 people survived. When the Titanic sunk, it was on its way from Southampton, England to New York City, USA. A crewman spotted the iceberg that sank the Titanic, the captain turned sharply by reversing the engines, and the iceberg carved a 300-foot hole in the Titanic, below waterline. The bow of the ship went down first, as five compartments filled with water. The Titanic was 882 feet long and 92.5 feet (at its widest point).
