However, during its maiden voyage it struck an iceberg in the North Atlantic on the night of the 14 April 1912. The ship sank within 3 hours with the loss of 1517 lives. It had 20 lifeboats, but many were launched half-empty or too late. Carpathia the next morning. This is Collapsible D, the last of the lifeboats launched from the Titanic.
