In the titanic, survival rate of teenage boys (ages 10-15) are very low. In the first class, there are two boys whose ages are 10-15. These two boys are 11 years old William Carter and 13 years old John Ryerson. Both of them were saved in lifeboat 4 (port). 13 years old John Ryerson had been initially denied entry into the boat by Second Officer Lightoller. But his father protested that he should go as he was only 13. Lightoller relented. 11 years old William Carter just managed to join his mother and sister in lifeboat 4 but it was a close thing. After reluctantly allowing 13 years old John Ryerson into the boat Chief Second Steward George Dodd had demanded 'no more boys,' but his mother put a hat on young William's head and together they boarded the boat. In the second class, there is only one boy who is 10-15 years old. It's 14 years old George Frederick Sweet. There is one day before his fifthteenth birthday. He became employed by Samuel Herman, a farmer and proprietor of the Britannia Hotel in Castle Cary. He became part of Samuel's family, consisting of his wife Jane and twin daughters and he boarded Titanic with them as second class passangers. On the night of the sinking, George, alongside Samuel Herman, saw Mrs Herman and her daughters off in one of the lifeboats.14 years old George Frederick Sweet died in the sinking. He was probably deterred from entering a lifeboat and died with Samuel Herman. In the third class, there are sixteen boys whose ages are 10-15. Only two of them survived. The ones who survived are 11 years old Ilyas Narid and 14 years old Johan Svensson.14 years old Johan Svensson sneaked onto the first class boat deck and after being refused twice finally got into lifeboat 13, the third boat he tried to enter. 11 years old Ilyas Narid was saved in Collapsible C with his older sister (age 14). The rest of fourteen boys (age 10-15) in third class died in the sinking. In total, only 3 out of 19 teenage boys survived. There is a %16 survival rate. There is a %100 survival rate in second class children (they didn't count George Frederick as a child). But the most important cause of this is that there is no second class boy whose age is 10-13. After George Frederick Sweet, the oldest second class boys in second class are two 8 years old boys John Davies and Marshall Drew. If there were boys who are 10-13 years old, the survival rate of second class children probably wouldn't have been %100.
