The British ship RMS Titanic sank at 2:20 AM on April 15th 1912, having collided with the iceberg at 11:40 on April 14th. At 12.15 AM, one of the S.O.S calls from the Titanic reached its sister ship, the Olympic. The calls for help were heard by many ships but the closest ship, the Carpathia, was 4 hours away from the sinking Titanic. Titanic sank 2 hours before the Carpathia arrived to rescue survivors. Some survivors died of hypothermia shortly after they were recovered. The Carpathia arrived at New York on April 18, 1912. The Titanic's first and only passenger voyage had lasted less than five days.

He sounds the bell and notifies the bridge "Iceberg right ahead". Minutes later the Titanic struck the iceberg.

The Titanic was a cruse liner that was supposed to be the ship of dreams. It set sail for America on April 10th, 1912. 5,200 were aboard and they didn't expect anything to happen. There were not very many lifeboats. The first 4 days and 3 nights were very pleasant for the people aboard. They had gotten multiple ice warnings but they disregarded them. The captain sped up. The night of April 14th, 1912, the lookouts were freezing but hard at work. One of the men shouted, "Iceberg right ahead" at 11:18 . The captain ordered an immediate stop and to turn the ship the other way. It wouldn't work, Titanic was going to hit. The ship hit at 11:20. All the men and women thought it wasn't anything serious but the captain ordered all the watertight doors to shut and the maker of the ship to evaluate the plans. At about 11:30, the maker found out the unsinkable ship was going to sink. The workers got the 1st class people to the boats where they decided women and children first. Everyone thought this was just a drill but it wasn't. There was no panic or rush at first but when the water started to fill up, the panic rose. People threw off luggage, furniture, and started to jump off at about 1:50. The ship started to get steeper and steeper. At about 2:10, the whole ship was on a 120 degree angle. The lights went out at 2:15 and at 2:18 the ship split into half. At 2:20, the ship sunk to the bottom of the Atlantic. 1,517 people died that tragic night.
Answer: 2:20am

It is believed that the Royal Mail Steamer Titanicfoundered at approximately 2:20 in the morning of 15th April 1912. This time would have been according to the ship's clock or time zone, the time on other ships in the area may have been slightly different.

Shortly before this happened and while the liner was still above the surface, lifeboat A was swept off the roof of the Marconi room (waterlogged) and lifeboat B was capsized by waves.
