Brief views of a commercial steam ship sinking in U.S. waters, in 1919
United States USA Date:1919 Duration:24 sec Sound:NO SOUND
A single funnel freighter, with two masts, is seen sinking from the stern, in U.S. waters, in 1919. Her aft section is already under water, with only her stern mast visible. There is no sign of life aboard the ship. Film is taken from another vessel nearby, that is rising and falling with surface waves. The sinking ship is going under rapidly, sternfirst. Next, only her bow is seen as it starts to slip beneath the surface of the water, rotating slightly to starboard, as she goes straight down, and disappears from view. (The clip is only 24 seconds long and no other information is available.)
