      Titanic survivors John and Nelle Pillsbury Snyder. This photo shows the Snyders, taken April 18, 1912, the day they disembarked from the ship Carpathia after surviving the sinking of the Titanic. You wouldn't even know they had been through a trauma. But they appear wealthy and likely were one of the first evacuated on a lifeboat.

    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. He was one of only a few survivors to weather the icy wet conditions. Many attribute this to the whiskey.

    Ruth Becker, titanic survivor. Ruth was twelve when the ship sank, when she was unable to get into a lifeboat with her family she was left on board alone until a passing steward threw her to a lifeboat that was being lowered. She never spoke of the Titanic, her own children never knew she was on board, until she was elderly. Her ashes were scattered over the titanic site in the Atlantic ocean...
