He urged his wife to board but she refused, saying, "We have lived together for many years. Where you go, I go".

Debris falling out of the ship was strewn over a 1/2 mile across the sea floor.

    Rigel, a big black Newfoundland dog, belonging to First Officer Murdoch, saved the passengers in Life Boat #4. They were drifting in front of the Carpathia, too weak to call out.

The boat might not have been rescued if not for the sharp barking of Rigel.
