It truly was sad, she was only two. But, I feel bad for all of the children of the R.M.S. Titanic that perished over a darn iceberg. You can see a picture of an iceberg 405 miles of the coast of Newfoundland with a smear of red paint...
I don't think she was holding her husband and smiling. This story came from the maid that rescued the boy. It was in an artical and was a third hand story. With the tilt of the boat at the end, there is no way they could of been simply holding hands and smiling. Bless all the children who lost their lives that night. May they rest in peace.
actually, the parents gave Loraine to a ship builder who went into a lifeboat. Since they had to change their names, people thought she had drowned. Sometime after the Titanic sunk, she claimed that she was Loraine Allison and she has a bunch of papers to prove it.
They could see nothing on this night. They were in the middle of the Atlantic on a night with no Moon, it would have only appeared as a huge black mass, and so it was only noticeable when it blocked out the stars. Coupled with the fact that the lookouts had no binoculars, everything that could have gone wrong that night went wrong.
It is awfully sad..But i keep on thinking that this tragegy could have been avoided if the Captain stopped the engine before the night. Without visibility ,and with no moon it was dangerous to sail..and the boat sailed very fast if my memories are good..sad.
