That is why I'd like to find the account Diana Preston used. It could be a factually accurate and theoretically possible stuck elevator story.
None of the third class passengers who were in their cabins that afternoon made mention of that, and they were the only ones in a position to possibly hear it.
How did you know I'd read Preston, Jim? Does it show.That is why I'd like to find the account Diana Preston used.
I too thought the crew in the cargo hold had become trapped due to reading Officer Bestic's account in another book. I just can't remember what book it was. James Leary account is fishy because in his 1915 account he said nothing about people trapped in stalled elevators.but references do help and it was somewhat my bad
Hmm..., that sounds like a good explanation to me. Except was the list serve enough at fist to stall an elevator?Also any trapped passengers and crew could have first been tripped up by the list problem as they may already have been in the lifts before the explosion happened and as they dealt with the list problem the power went out?
