1,540 people have died. They only had half life jackets of that number and the rest died. Its a sad story. My grandma was 7 when that happend. Im thankful she wasnt one of the passengers. To tell you the truth, the employees on the titanic were dumbos that couldnt do better to save people. They could have made the 2 screws tighter that keeps it from sinking and they shouldnt have closed the doors when it started to flood they could have let some in to the other side to keep balance longer.
