Titanic Survivor

The name of this titanic survivor was called Elise Doling. Elsie was born on Oct 30th, 1893 in Southampton, England , she was 18 years old when she was on board in the titanic.She was travelling with Ada Julia Elizabeth and Henry Price Hodges. Not both survived only Ada and Elsie.

At 11:40 p.m. ship's time, watchmen aboard the ship spotted an iceberg, and the ship made a sudden turn to the left, causing it to sideswipe the iceberg. The ice punched holes in the starboard (or right side) of the boat, along a nearly 300-foot (90 m) stretch and it began filling it with water. Six of the ship's 16 water-tight compartments started filling. But this was enough to make the ship begin to sink into the water, at which point the water flowed of the top of these compartments (the "transverse bulkheads") and begin filling the other compartments. Modern estimates suggest that the boat could have possibly limped to shore with only four breached compartments.
