The inaction and sloppiness of the US government and its military at the time is what caused the USS Indianapolis to fail and for the nearly 900 men to die at sea. If the ship would have been properly repaired and stocked, along with the men on the ship being properly trained for sea life, all those innocent, brave lives would not have died. The ship sank and failed due to the military 's haste upon needing new recruits and the how utterly unprepared the ship was
It was especially difficult during the night, when they couldn’t establish visual contact with each other either. This either made them sitting ducks, or hopelessly lost. Destroyers are much larger and much slower than PT boats, but Jack’s crew didn’t spot it in the time it took for them to get out of the way before the Japanese destroyer rammed their boat, killing 2 of his crew. Jack and the 10 other crew he saved swam for 5 hours before they got to Olasana island. Here, Jack found two
Titanic was the answer to having a functioning “unsinkable” ship, but icebergs thought “unsinkable” was a big word to use for a ship. Many people thought the Titanic was unsinkable, many people started getting arrogant because they thought that the boat couldn't sink. So many people boarded the Titanic in the hope of going to the states and starting a brand new life. Many people didn't start a new life, they had just ended it. Being humans we tend to get a little bit over our head, the people sailing the Titanic got a little bit to much over there head.
There was some danger due threat of U-Boats in the english channel, however the ship continued on its journey (Sterling). Under the water a U-Boat lay waiting for a ship to come, and the RMS Lusitania stumbled into its trap (Sterling). The RMS Lusitania was struck with a single torpedo to the hull of the ship and sank within 20 minutes, it took its 2000 passengers with it (Sterling). Almost nobody escaped including the 128 US citizens aboard
Sadly, while people were innocently waiting for the rescue teams, disgusting people raped the since the victims had nowhere to run to. Families left stranded, most people had no transportation t get away, and they had no shelter to be safe. 100,000 people in total were left stranded ( Hurricane Katrina ). All valuables lost in the storm weren’t salvageable at all. Families were just left with the structure of their house if it hadn’t already collapsed on itself.
In particular, the captains of the Titanic did not provide enough life vests and lifeboats for the number of passengers aboard. “Don’t you understand? The water is freezing and there aren’t enough boats…not enough by half. Half the people on this ship are going to die” (Titanic, 1997). In this scene, Rose realizes that the Titanic is not equipped to ensure the safety of the passengers aboard.
In my book, A storm too soon,the rescue story of the crew of the Sean Seamour II, a 44 foot tall sailboat that got into a drowning hazard and sank during a storm 225 miles off of the coast of North Carolina. The hazard level of this storm was not known very well, while the crew didn 't even know what was going to happen. A very vicious and terrifying storm was headed right for them,but it was going to be worse than they thought. Soon, 80-foot waves started crashing into the area of where the boat was sailing, Captain JP Lutz, Ben Tye, and Rudy Snel were all prepared to access the lower deck of the boat where they would be safe.
This would affect the other colonist lives especially for the children that were there and were coming to an unknown country now fatherless or motherless and
“The Most Dangerous Game” by Richard Connell gives a distressed mood throughout the short story, by using figurative language and making Rainsford seem very nervous and unsteady, while trying to get to safety after falling off of his yacht. When Rainsford falls off of the boat he realizes happens to him, “the wash from the speeding yacht slapped him” (9) making him cry for help with no one hearing him or helping him. This making the reader feel anxious and on edge waiting to find out what happens to Rainsford .Rainsford is thinking to stop swimming he hears a gunshot, that gunshot giving him hope that he isnt completely lost after 10 min of vigorous swimming he heard “The muttering and growling of the sea breaking of a rocky shore” (9). The
A Norwegian lumber barge called the Strømwellwas caught in a storm and dragged into the cape where Camp Meriwether now resides. It was broken up and the wreckage washed ashore on the beach near the cape. Only the captain survived, trapped in the wreckage while his crew and his young wife drowned in the storm. He was found by some natives and died a few weeks later from gangrene in one of his shattered limbs. Apparently, he went mad from grief before the end, rambling on about how he should have gone down with the ship so that the others could have survived.
The longest ladders only reached the seventh and the fire nets were useless to the girls who were falling from over 100 feet above. Several of the girls jumping were already on fire, demonstrating that there was only the choice to jump or burn to death. Thousands of people continued to watch as firemen poured water on the building and entered to find even more girls. The elevator shaft was clogged with at least thirty more bodies, most burned beyond recognition; in the ninth floor workroom
On the USS Indianapolis, a tragic incident happened on the sinking. Soldiers lost their lives in many ways. The torpedo, drowning, sharks, dehydration, starvation, and drinking saltwater. Only three hundred and seventeen men survived the catastrophe. Today I am writing an essay about Why they died and how they could have prevented it.
Early June sun shone bright as I set off into town. I drove down the winding road. My mind drifted into oblivion. I knew this road's every twist and turn when CRUNCH. I stepped outside to assess the damage.
The USS Indianapolis was a heavy cruiser of the US Navy, named for the city of Indianapolis, Indiana. The sinking of this ship in 1945 led to the greatest single loss of life at sea. The ship was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine and sinks within minutes in shark-infested waters. The sinking of the USS Indianapolis shows the greatest loss of life at sea, what the survivors had to endure before saving and the prosecution of the captain of the USS. The ship was done with its first mission, delivering the world's first operational atomic bomb to the island of Tinian.
On May 7, 1915 the British luxury ocean liner, the RMS Lusitania, sunk within 18 minutes of being shot by a German U-boat in an act of self defense. Germany’s U-boats were latest technology; similar to submarines. They were hard to detect by radar and surprised the enemy. Out of 192 Americans onboard 128 died, which outraged Americans Eventually bringing them into the war. Despite a minimal amount of evidence on the contrary, Germany had every right to sink the Lusitania.
