Lifeboats Work

The Explorer sinking (Chilean Government photograph).

On November 23, 2007 a ship called the Explorer full of passengers sank after hitting an iceberg. Unlike the Titanic, it had enough lifeboats. The roughly 100 passengers and crew on board all survived, despite the frigid waters, and no one was injured. They were picked up by Nordnorge, a Norwegian cruise ship.
