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.

    What is this supposed to be? This person nor his roommates show up on any passenger lists, Mrs Astor was in lifeboat 4 and we know the names of the men (mostly crewmen) that boat 4 plucked from the see and the names of those they took on from boat B and 14. Room 804 isn’t a cabin on any deck of titanic, this guys family biography lists nothing about titanic, the picture of the “French Roommate” is actually a real survivor named Sidney Collett who was a 2nd passenger traveling with a female friend and her friend..... not to mention he wasn’t under an assumed name considering there were only two middle eastern men aboard who survived

    Interesting that the only sites that mention this man's name at all are clickbaity 'news' sites. You say he wrote about his experience during the sinking, meaning he must have something published under his name, but I can't even find any convincing evidence of there having been a writer with the name 'Vaghinak Byurat'. Where did this story come from? Did some clickbait site just make it up out of thin air? (btw the fire theory has been disproven many times, look up Titanic: Honor and Glory's video 'Fire and Ice' for a solid debunking of it.)

    The titanic hit the iceberg . Stopped .. the water pumps would have keep it afloat BUT. Ismay and capt smith decided to ship foward to new york . Pushing more water in to the ship till the pumps could not handle it re stopped and then it sank . . The story is more romatic if it just hits and sinks . But the truth is it hit stopped then continued on stopped then it sank

    Iceberg sunk it. I think with all the dives to the Titanic, that's been pretty much proven without question. the physical damage now seen and recorded adds up to the descriptions of what was described as to what happened that night.

    The titanic was sunk due to a fire in the haul couple of days before the departure that weakened the haul. So when it hit the iceberg it wrecked the side instead of "bouncing" off of it.

    Wait a minute-
    How far away did the ship already sail from the iceberg? Because if it was close enough people could have swam to the iceberg and just chill and wait

    JP Morgan put everybody that opposed the federal reserves onto Titanic with complimentary tickets on her maiden voyage. He was supposed to have been on her. But last minute, he got “sick.” Also, the lack of lifeboats was by design. Also, the red warning flares were replaced with white flares, so they couldn’t call for help.
