On This Day In Canadian History....

1912 - RMS Titanic, after hitting an iceberg hours previous, sends out it's final distress calls before it sinks into the inky black, frigid North Atlantic, off the coast of Newfoundland....

* 12:50 am EST: The wireless operator of the Virginian, 200 miles away, reports that they have been trying to reach the White Star liner, but have lost communication with the Titanic and that the last signals, at 12:27 am, were "blurred and ended abruptly."

* 2:00 am: Hunston and Goodwin get their first request for information from New York; according to Hunston, "this is followed by 300 more chiefly from newspapers to many ships asking for news." Hunston refuses because wireless communications are confidential.

* 6:00 am: "After daylight news commences to arrive from ships stating Carpathia picked up 20 boats of people. No word of any more being saved."

Only 711 survive out of a total of 2,224 passengers and crew; 209 bodies are taken to Halifax, and 150 of them are buried in a Halifax cemetery.
