The Facts Bill Wormstedt's research article


Luke Owens

I haven't posted in these forums until now, but I have to speak up on this one. <g> First of all, yes, the article is great. However, the question of what Lightoller and/or Gracie did or didn't see is moot.

As stated in many places, both men were under water, then blown to the surface by an "explosion". One has to wonder 1) if they were both blown to the surface at the same time, and 2) if this "explosion" was caused by the break-up of the ship? If so, neither one of them could possibly have seen the break-up; the ship would have been under water by the time they were in a position to see.
