Titanic Survivor Claims an Iceberg Didn't Destroy the Ship

Share this article on social media.

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…

💥 Btw, guys, there is a cat hidden in this video. If you can spot our furry little guy, you’re much more attentive than most people! Do you accept the challenge? 😽

– 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.

    Only problem with the dark spot being a fire theory, all the pictures of Titanic leaving isn't Titanic. It's her sister ship. They didn't have any footage of her leaving so they claimed it was her, it was in a Titanic documentary. They have have said it a few times, but some people don't know and assume it is the real footage.

    Not sure about this story at all. At the age of 47, Astor married 18-year-old socialite Madeleine Talmage Force the previous wife was definitely not on board since it was John Jacob Astor's honeymoon with his pregnant new wife whom would not have passed for 20 even.

    Sounds like he was asleep and simply described what he felt that startled him awake. Didn’t seem like he was claiming it was an explosion.

    There's no way there would be an explosion! Perhaps the submarine part or the ice berg

    It was a fire but all it did was help the iceberg break the ship.
