About two and a half hours later the Carpathia Ship saw us and they let us go into their boat. They had already saved a whole bunch of people from the Great R.M.S Titanic. Captain Edward John Smith went down with his boat. People were saying that it took two hours and forty minutes for the Titanic to fully sink. The Carpathia ship took us to New York we arrived in New York on April 18,1912 at 9:25pm. That was an experience that I will never forget about. We were very thankful that we had survived the traumatic experience. R.I.P to all of those victims that passed away on the R.M.S Titanic.
