    Chief Baker Charles Joughin, stepped off the bow and never got his head wet. He had two bottles of whiskey in his pockets and survived being in the water for 3 hours. They believe that was due to the large quantity of whiskey he had consumed.

    Titanic survivor Charles Joughin- Do you know who Charles Joughin is? Well you should. His story of surviving the Titanic is most extraordinary. After fortifying his body with two bottles of whiskey, Joughin rode the Titanic into the ocean similar to Jack and Rose in the movie and simply stepped off the bow without even getting his head wet, then spent 3 hours in the frigid waters before being rescued.

Charles John Joughin was the Chief Baker on the Titanic. He fortified himself with whiskey during the sinking and was seen staggering around the deck throwing deck chairs into the water for people to hold onto. He himself went into the water and, although drunk, managed to swim to an overturned lifeboat and balance himself on the keel until another lifeboat picked him up.
