People all over the world were shocked to hear that the Titanic had sunk. Only 705 people out of 2,208 passengers and crew were saved.
Why had the ship gone down? they asked.
Why had so many died?
Both the British and the Americans studied the tragedy. They said the Titanic had been going too fast. The captain should have been more careful because fo the ice, and he should have held lifeboat drills. They also said many third-class passengers were warned of danger after the other passengers.
