Titanic Survivor Claims an Iceberg Didn't Destroy the Ship

  • Published on Jun 14, 2019
  • Have you ever met a person who hasn’t ever heard the story of Titanic? Unlikely. Even if you ask a 10-year-old, they’ll tell you exactly what took down the gigantic ship. However, some survivors of the sinking legend would beg to differ. Here’s one of their stories, and it has nothing to do with an iceberg.
    Armenian publicist Vaghinak Byurat was 25 years old in the spring of 1912. He described what happened on his journey to America on the most famous ship in the world in his memoirs. He’s never mentioned an iceberg hitting the Titanic, and always spoke about an explosion. And if what he said was true, something must have caused that huge explosion...

    - Armenian publicist Vaghinak Byurat was 25 years old in the spring of 1912. He described what happened on his journey to America on the most famous ship in the world in his memoirs.
    - In 1912, Vaghinak published some books together with his father, a famous Armenian writer. His task was to take the books to America.
    - They went to bed rather late on April 14, just like on the other nights. Shortly after midnight, something that sounded like a big explosion woke everyone up.
    - None of the crew members wanted to say anything, but a few minutes later it was impossible to deny that the Titanic was going underwater.
    - Vaghinak put his passport and money in a little bag and tied it around his neck. The Titanic’s bow was already underwater by that time. A lot of people in this situation wouldn’t have dared to take it to the open water.
    - The water in the North Atlantic that night was just below freezing, at a scary 28 degrees Fahrenheit (-2 C). The young writer felt his arms and legs go numb, and he was understandably getting weaker and weaker every second.
    - Then, he bumped into something. It was a lifeboat! But it was so overcrowded they pushed the young man with a paddle when he tried to stick to the boat.
    - Vaghinak woke up alive on board another ship. That ship was the Carpathia, and it was en route to New York with lucky survivors on board.
    - 12 days later, a woman came into the room. She turned out to be the person who saved Vaghinak. Missis Astor told the sailors that the young man was her son, and she wouldn’t let them go without him since she’d already lost her husband on the Titanic.
    - Vaghinak lived a long and happy life and, as a great storyteller, he shared what happened to him many times. Interestingly, he’s never mentioned an iceberg hitting the Titanic, and always spoke about an explosion.
    - It could have been a fire, and quite a lot of people actually believe that theory, saying that coal was burning in the ship’s hull.
    - Another theory that explained the explosion claimed that there was a German U-boat involved in the sinking of Titanic.

    The titanic was sunk due to a fire in the haul couple of days before the departure that weakened the haul. So when it hit the iceberg it wrecked the side instead of "bouncing" off of it.

    Wait a minute-
    How far away did the ship already sail from the iceberg? Because if it was close enough people could have swam to the iceberg and just chill and wait

    You know this story is BS when it doesn't mention the Carpathia didn't arrive in New York for several days. He was passed on the ship for several days and then awoke coming into New York Harbor???

    JP Morgan put everybody that opposed the federal reserves onto Titanic with complimentary tickets on her maiden voyage. He was supposed to have been on her. But last minute, he got “sick.” Also, the lack of lifeboats was by design. Also, the red warning flares were replaced with white flares, so they couldn’t call for help.

    I have always believed in the theory that there was a fire in the coal bunkers which exploded .blowing a hole either in her keel or in her hull .there might have been an iceberg in the area at the time and the two drifted together in the time titanic sank .

    There is that theory of the fire, which is flawed. They wouldn't let a couple of thousand people on knowing of any damage, also the watch men should have seen the iceberg sooner.

    Wasn’t the iceberg, sank her, it was the bloody great hole in it and maybe the lower cargo door...and an explosion , and aliens, and cursed books, and ......OJ Simpson.

    I will say that the fire made the Titanic weeker and when the ice burg hit, Titanic could not take the damage and cause that explosion when it hit the Titanic cause the fire might be there still.

    Are we all going to ignore the fact the man who told the story was born in the 1800’s and wouldn’t have been alive around the time of this video. Including the fact he had health problems. Also the water was ice cold it didn’t matter if they swam well or not. You would get hyperthermia nearly instantly. He got numb everywhere and if his whole body was emerged under water and there were some survivors who told the story of the iceberg. And that spot on the boat was actually from a fire before that was before it set sail. That weakened the boat a little bit but it was proofed to be an ice burg that sank the Titanic
