How many people died when the Titanic sunk?

Answer

More than 1500 people lost their lives with the sinking of the Titanic on April 15, 1912. The Titanic was believed to be unsinkable, and it was not equipped with enough lifeboats for all passengers and crew.

The biggest, most luxurious ship ever built, the Titanic, left port from Southampton, England bound for New York City on April 10, 1912. The ship was carrying 2,200 passengers and crew. The Titanic started to take on water when it hit an iceberg on the night of April 14th, and it sank within three hours of departure. Only 705 people, less than a third of those on board, made it into the lifeboats.
