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.

    Why did they come forward with this now and not before when it was a big deal. Plus......the Titanic didn’t sinn right beside the iceberg, which is 90% underwater. And it all happened at night, when most were asleep. Why would they come forward with this now, and how would they now so many details when they were asleep.
    I smell a scam!

    Edit: of course he didn’t wrote about an iceberg, he never saw it. He only heard what he thought was an explosion!

    This is purely fiction. Madeline Astor was pregnant and 18 not in her 50s when she sailed on the RMS TITANIC and lost her new husband, John Jacob Astor, in the sinking. At no point did ANY survivor say an iceberg did not sink the ship during the American or British inquiries. The picture of the TITANIC in her slip before her launch was not where the coal bunker fire occurred since A: the coal bunkers were farther aft, and B: the hull was empty at that time. The bunker fire was put out early in the morning on April 14th, 1912. And the coal bunker fire theory has been thoroughly debunked. The iceberg damage did not go into the area affected by the fire. For all you naysayers out there, I've been researching the TITANIC disaster for 24 years.

    If you guys want to know what happened to the guy that jumped with him, he died. He drowned
    Also, my theory of how the titanic drowned is that a fire burned in a room, and then when it started burning an iceberg had hit the burning room.

    Moren is not a French name but he could have misunderstood which does not negate the man's existence. The explosion is likely since the fire event has been confirmed by experts and there is nothing new to the idea. But that the ship never hit the iceberg could explain why they never took the ship to remove it from the sea and study its aspect to find out where the alleged iceberg would have hit...and explains why they only went diving to look at it. It could be the greatest story behind the sinking that an explosion sunk it not an iceberg. Where you can blame an iceberg without repercussion, rather than the ones supposed to insure mechanical safety on the boat which would have jailed for life those rich people, and that would have hurt some ego but more importantly it would have hurt some wallets where you cannot sue an iceberg but you can sue the company for endangering and killing lives due to blatant recklessness (especially because the fire was a known event from before sailing from dock and no one took it upon themselves to take seriously).

    Thats pretty interesting, so long post of an non-native english speaker incoming:
    The impact of the iceberg itself wouldn´t have sounded like an explosion - remember the ship was sure one of the fastest of its time, but ships in general are pretty slow, so i can tell it actually hit with an maximum of 21kn, which is about 40km/h (24mph) - pretty slow - and that would be if they had never spottet that iceberg and were at full speed, both is not correct. They actually (so the story) spotted it, but too late - they even took the engines in reverse to stop in the right time, so they will have been pretty slow. I guess not more than 10km/h (6mph) - an collision, even with an object that big, at that speed wouldn´t possibly sound like an explosion, more like a scratching.

    A fire actually could be possible, but if we think again - wouldn´t everyone on the ship have noticed it?
    If there would have been a fire down in the engineroom - it would have smoked quite severely, if it was strong enough to weaken that kind of hull. Even if it was only glowing, not flaming.
    I think it is impossible that nobody would have noticed that there is smoke coming out of the enginerooms, because there would only a small part of it be going through the funnel.

    The sound of an explosion could have come from the icy water, that came pretty fast into the enginerooms, where most of the engines must have been enlightened - that were pretty much ovens, burning coal at at least 200-300°C (about 500°F) maybe more. If icy water were to come onto them or extinguish them in one hit, that would pretty much have made a ton of steam in less than a second. This fast enlargening of the volume is known of when you try to extinguish burning oil with water - it explodes, same with fluid metal.
    This could be what they heard as an explosion, i guess. Because it actually was a kind of explosion - a steamexplosion.

    It is known, that the Titanic hasn´t stopped at the place of collision they changed their course slightly and drove on with full (avaiable) power while sinking - so there is no wonder that this iceberg wasn´t within sight anymore as Vaghinak and his friend entered the deck. It was nighttime after all.

    But we´ll never know whats the truth. This is also just a guess :)

    GUYS THIS IS A TRUE TITANIC STORY! On the Titanic someone wanted to go back to there bunk.😂😂😂😂😂! Then they over slept and all the boats were gone! So he went and QUICKLY got a life jacket with a whistle and then he was in the FREEZING water for 2 hrs and then he luckily came up to his friend in a boat with 10 others! So he survived! He past away in 1998!

    The titanic would have survived the iceberg. It’s “unsinkable” but the fire weakened the hull which was where the iceberg hit. With this the hull was so weak that it sunk. I think that it would be just fine it the fire never started. -My theory’
