Titanic Hits the Iceberg

Titanic's lookout, Frederick Fleet, spotted an iceberg directly ahead of his ship at 11:40 pm on April 14, 1912. Despite the crew's best efforts, a collision could not be avoided and fatal damage was inflicted on the liner. The iceberg opened Titanic's first five watertight compartments and was her death sentence.
