Have you ever met a person who hasn’t ever heard the story of Titanic? Unlikely. Even if you ask a 10-year-old, they’ll tell you exactly what took down the gigantic ship. However, some survivors of the sinking legend would beg to differ. Here’s one of their stories, and it has nothing to do with an iceberg.
Armenian publicist Vaghinak Byurat was 25 years old in the spring of 1912. He described what happened on his journey to America on the most famous ship in the world in his memoirs. He’s never mentioned an iceberg hitting the Titanic, and always spoke about an explosion. And if what he said was true, something must have caused that huge explosion...
💥 Btw, guys, there is a cat hidden in this video. If you can spot our furry little guy, you're much more attentive than most people! Do you accept the challenge? 😽

- Armenian publicist Vaghinak Byurat was 25 years old in the spring of 1912. He described what happened on his journey to America on the most famous ship in the world in his memoirs.
- In 1912, Vaghinak published some books together with his father, a famous Armenian writer. His task was to take the books to America.
- They went to bed rather late on April 14, just like on the other nights. Shortly after midnight, something that sounded like a big explosion woke everyone up.
- None of the crew members wanted to say anything, but a few minutes later it was impossible to deny that the Titanic was going underwater.
- Vaghinak put his passport and money in a little bag and tied it around his neck. The Titanic’s bow was already underwater by that time. A lot of people in this situation wouldn’t have dared to take it to the open water.
- The water in the North Atlantic that night was just below freezing, at a scary 28 degrees Fahrenheit (-2 C). The young writer felt his arms and legs go numb, and he was understandably getting weaker and weaker every second.
- Then, he bumped into something. It was a lifeboat! But it was so overcrowded they pushed the young man with a paddle when he tried to stick to the boat.
- Vaghinak woke up alive on board another ship. That ship was the Carpathia, and it was en route to New York with lucky survivors on board.
- 12 days later, a woman came into the room. She turned out to be the person who saved Vaghinak. Missis Astor told the sailors that the young man was her son, and she wouldn’t let them go without him since she’d already lost her husband on the Titanic.
- Vaghinak lived a long and happy life and, as a great storyteller, he shared what happened to him many times. Interestingly, he’s never mentioned an iceberg hitting the Titanic, and always spoke about an explosion.
- It could have been a fire, and quite a lot of people actually believe that theory, saying that coal was burning in the ship’s hull.
- Another theory that explained the explosion claimed that there was a German U-boat involved in the sinking of Titanic.

I am not sure ..... what the point of this video is? Clickbait? A guy, who was a writer, who survived, heard an explosion ... what would an impact at a rate of speed when hitting an iceberg sound like? This video is a bit of a stretch in its attempt to use Titanic as subject matter.

What happened to Morren
Actually, the real reason was how they bolted the exterior of THE TITANIC that made it very weak. There was crystals formed inside them which affected their strength so a collision with an iceberg with the weakly built exterior completely obliterated the shell and the other main reason was that the captain also ordered the crew to at max speed even at night where there very low visibility just so they could get to their destination faster than planned to surprise the people and show off the gigantic ship .

It’s because of a fire and the captain couldn’t stop the trip launch because he would’ve gone bankrupt

The fire weekend the side and the ice burg hit the week spot if the ship was smart they could have fixed it or went slower and dogged the ice berg. And if the metal was stronger the ship would have been better

I read a article that indicated a fire 🔥WAS burning in one of the coal bunkers and was NOT put out because the departure would have delayed the departure of the famous ship and maiden voyage and cause a big scandal for the company.

The picture of Titanic was when she was still in her cradle before launching. The spot in the picture has nothing to do with any fire in port.

You have to follow the money. Who owned the Titanic commercially? Do they have an insurance policy on it? Was this insurance policy going to pay them out perhaps $1000000 or more? And then could someone have planted a bomb to that effect. Basically what happened with 911 in New York.

Titanic was heavily under insured, White Star lost a shed load of money when she sank.

It was preplanned to take out high rolling bankers, so JP Morgan and his buddies could set up the phony Federal Reserve on Jekyl Island in 1917!!! Greedy MURDERERS!!

Those "explosion sounds" was the sound of the massive ship colliding with an ice berg. Why is this even a question.

I heard stories that the Titanic was supposed to also head to Mexico after it stopped in New York. It was carrying a thousand cases of English mayonnaise which the Mexicans craved. The ship was expected to arrive on May 5. After hitting the iceberg and going down with the precious cargo the Mexicans declared May 5 as “Sinko the Mayo”

I know why the Titanic sank, it's because the people that created the ship said it won't sink and they won't need to have an announcement. But they should have because that is what you should always do. So God punished them and made the Great ship sink.
