For many years it was generally believed the ship sank in one piece; however, when the wreck was located many years later, it was discovered that the ship had fully broken in two. All remaining passengers and crew were dipped into lethally cold water of the ocean with a temperature of 28 °F (−2 °C).44 Almost all of those in the water died of cardiac arrest or other causes within 15–30 minutes.

The Argonne lasted for a whole four years and broke out in 1914 due to a number of reasons.
