14 Horrible Disasters Which Were Almost Ignored In Historical Records

11. Titanic Caused Sinking Of Another Ship

The sinking of the Titanic caused prodigious loss and a great shock to the United States. Critical iceberg and poor judgment are some of the reasons believed to have led to the sinking of the Titanic. No matter what caused the ship to sink though, if there were adequate lifeboats, the number of deaths could be lower. Following the sinking of the Titanic, ship makers introduced smarter safety regulations to increase passenger safety in other ships. That didn’t help much though. It even played part in the death 800 people. Having enough lifeboats in Eastland ship doubled the problem rather than providing a solution. It was in 1915 when the Eastland rolled several seconds after it took off and killed 844 of the 2,000 people inside the ship. The heavy boat’s weight combined with the lifeboats’ boat made it lose control and sink in the process.
