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? 😽

SUMMARY:
- 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 used to think it was an iceberg.. now new facts has surfaced. I found out that there was a lot of ice covering the water that night. The lookout tower men on titanic said they saw a haze in the distance and never mentioned an iceberg that we are told to learn. A ship captain expert who travelled in that same area said a lot of ships have sunk because of packed ice in the water. He said if titanic hit the iceberg it would have gone down much quicker in around 10 to 15 minutes I think he said. But he doesn’t at all believe that story of the iceberg..(his experience is in here in RUvid...he has the experience..not us)... so it was a sheet of thick ice covering the huge water and maybe lots of it. It made sense afterwards. I will probably see this came out more in the future. Also there is a lot of real footage of ships struggling to get through thick packed ice which is quite scary to look out especially for ship crew.

What the Titanic's stokers had said to the senior officers of the Titanic (they were tending to the coal bunkers & the furnaces to produce the ships power) had talked about a fire in 1 of the coal bunkers that was burning the inferior coal & they tried to have put into the furnace, was heating the metal inside the bunker & part of the Titanic's hull causing it to start deforming. The unlucky contact between the Titanic's hull with the iceberg at the unlucky spot were the fire in the coal bunker was & already been weakened, puncturing the openings into the hull, had spelled the ships doom. I had watched a documentary about the Titanic's stokers.

What I heard is that the coal inside the hold because it was in a huge heap cause spontaneous combustion. Which led to a fire inside the hull. White Star Line was in financial trouble and didn't want to wait. Firefighters would not board/got off the Titanic before it went to sea. The fire inside the hull cause the dark spot and weakened the hull. Not all the rivets were apparently steel, some were iron which weren't as strong.

No 1. White Star was not in financial trouble. No 2. The 'fire' would not cause a visible mark on the hull, as it was below the water line.

i think that the builders put the rivets in wrong 'cos some were made out of wrought iron and others cast iron. however, a machine did some and men did others meaning they were not as strong

The coal probably came out of the furnace to weaken the hull so the ship died

I agree with this. I think a person who has never heard a 52 ton hunk of metal crashing into a large iceberg wouldn't readily be able to identify the sound, as they would probably underestimate how loud it would be. I mean, I remember being incredibly surprised at the boom I heard the first time I saw a tree fall.

Noten honey, it was the sister ship, one of the smoke stacks had I think it was olimpa,on it? And my opinion is the bolts that held the right front seams together were the fault. Because the meteral the bolts were made of were suppose to have stronger meteral, and they snapped apart when the ship hit the side of the iceberg. Then the doors to parts of the ship couldn't be closed cause the water to push the doors back to hard. And wal la. The fish have a new home. Seem like it was insured as the Titanic. But that a secret. Lol🚢🚣😬😰😱

Then the explosion would have happened in the dock, not the middle of the ocean. Different temperatures go towards equilibrium. The steel was very thick. There were no holes in the hull except when the iceberg hit the hull.

The story im used to is there was a fire in the boiler section of the ship, throughout the journey they couldnt get it under control but it wasnt life threatening. However, it weakened the metal so much that when they crashed into an iceberg it tore right apart. Freezing cold water hitting a large fire can imitate an explosion, or the water rushing in.
