Titanic Survivor Claims an Iceberg Didn't Destroy the Ship

  • Published on Jun 14, 2019
  • 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...

    - 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.

    Fire weakened the hull and then the ice hit and the pressure on the weak bit leaked and if that didn't happen everyone would have survived

    Ok, so here's my little theory.
    There has been knowledge that the Titanic was made out of the strongest metal at that time but near the end, they ran out of that metal so they used a lesser one. So the explosion could have been the hull crashing or just a stressful recall of the situation that most people on the ship heard as if the coal heater exploded after the hull was damaged.
    So I think it was the iceberg

    The explosion sounds were likely due to water rushing in and reaching hot coal or weakened metal breaking.

    Highly doubt it was a U boat. Although they had subs as early as the 1850s, they weren’t really practical until 1912-13 when they were equipped with Diesel engines. Although the timing slightly lines up, I feel it’s still very unlikely.

      I think their was to much pressure on the side of the boat were the iceberg hit the titanic. That is what caused an explosion in which caused the boat to sink

    what actually happened is that the titanic was on fire before the lauch and over time the metal got weak and a small iceberg could easily pearce the metal and thats what happened . it hit an ice berg but if the metal was a bit stronger on the outside it would survive .

    Why did they come forward with this now and not before when it was a big deal. Plus......the Titanic didn’t sinn right beside the iceberg, which is 90% underwater. And it all happened at night, when most were asleep. Why would they come forward with this now, and how would they now so many details when they were asleep.
    I smell a scam!

    Edit: of course he didn’t wrote about an iceberg, he never saw it. He only heard what he thought was an explosion!

    This is purely fiction. Madeline Astor was pregnant and 18 not in her 50s when she sailed on the RMS TITANIC and lost her new husband, John Jacob Astor, in the sinking. At no point did ANY survivor say an iceberg did not sink the ship during the American or British inquiries. The picture of the TITANIC in her slip before her launch was not where the coal bunker fire occurred since A: the coal bunkers were farther aft, and B: the hull was empty at that time. The bunker fire was put out early in the morning on April 14th, 1912. And the coal bunker fire theory has been thoroughly debunked. The iceberg damage did not go into the area affected by the fire. For all you naysayers out there, I've been researching the TITANIC disaster for 24 years.

      No none of the boilers exploded. There was no explosion on the TITANIC. Closest to it was the implosion that mangled the stern section shortly after the final plunge. It occurred about 500 meters below the surface.

    If you guys want to know what happened to the guy that jumped with him, he died. He drowned
    Also, my theory of how the titanic drowned is that a fire burned in a room, and then when it started burning an iceberg had hit the burning room.
