The Man in the Forecastle

Arun Vajpey

During the collision scene in Cameron's Titanic film, there is a man shown on the forecastle deck right at the extreme bow as the ship approaches the iceberg. He yell's "It's going to hit!" and runs to the port side of the forecastle just as the impact takes place. Just who was that man supposed to be? I was not aware that there was anyone forward of the lookouts' position that night.
