A water temperature of a seemingly warm 79 degrees (F) can lead to death after prolonged exposure, a water temperature of 50 degrees can lead to death in around an hour, and a water temperature of 32 degrees – like the ocean water on the night the Titanic sank – can lead to death in as few as 15 minutes.
It is believed that upwards of 1500 people died in the sinking of the Titanic. However, amongst the survivors was the ship’s head baker Charles Joughin. Joughin proceeded to tread water for about two hours before encountering a lifeboat, and eventually being rescued by the RMS Carpathia.
There’s a rule of thumb used by rescuers: In 50 degree (fahrenheit) water, 50% of victims will be dead within 50 minutes. The water Titanic sank in was about 28 degrees. At those temperatures, hypothermia starts to set in in about 15 minutes, and death in about 30.
No sharks did not eat Titanic passengers. The mangled bodies such as J.J.
However, it is generally believed that of the ship’s approximately 2,200 passengers and crew members, some 1,500 people perished when the ship sank. According to the U.S. committee investigating the sinking, 1,517 lives were lost, and its British counterpart determined that 1,503 died.

70F(21C) Water feels quite cold to most people. Treat any water temperature below 70F (21C) with caution. 40F(4.4C) or lower Water is painfully cold.
No. Jack Dawson and Rose DeWitt Bukater, portrayed in the movie by Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, are almost entirely fictional characters (James Cameron modeled the character of Rose after American artist Beatrice Wood, who had no connection to Titanic history). The movie’s love story is also fiction.

Now everyone can own a piece of the Titanic! This is a small thin slice of authentic pine wreckwood believed to be from the deck (look here). It was found floating in the sea by the CS Minia crew. Each piece will vary in size and shape.
