Fourteen minutes is all it took for Canadian Pacific Railway's RMS Empress of Ireland to sink below the icy Saint Lawrence River in Canada. 1,012 people lost their lives in a horrific disaster which happened in such a terribly short amount of time that many simple never found out what had hit them. Like the Titanic and Lusitania, the Empress of Ireland was one of the major disasters of the early 20th century that changed shipping regulation and history itself. This is the first real time sinking animation of its kind to depict the Empress' final moments in vivid detail as based on survivor accounts and books on the subject.

I have to commend the crew for such quick action. Only 6 of the lifeboats were able to get away, but that’s still impressive considering the very small timetable the crew were given.

Lifeboats 1, 3, 9, and 13 were launched in quick succession. Lifeboat 5 was released and cleared the ship as it was rolling over. Lifeboat 15 at the stern was lowered but capsized and ended up floating away upside down. Lifeboat 11 was launched but it was unable to clear the ship and ended up getting crushed as the ship was rolling over. Lifeboat 7 was not swung out until late in the sinking and was dragged under as the crew were trying to launch it. None of the port boats made it due to the Empress quickly developing a severe list to starboard after the collision, rendering the davits on that side useless.

I looked this up and read that Captain Kendall was picked up by a nearby lifeboat after he was thrown overboard as the Empress tumbled into the sea, then rowed survivors back to the Storstad, which was floating in the near distance. After unloading the passengers, and before he headed back out to pick up more survivors, he stormed up to the bridge and yelled to Captain Anderson, "You have sunk my ship!" I can't imagine the fury on his face.

WW1 overshadowing the disaster is usually cited as the reason it was almost forgotten, but considering how many Titanic survivors stayed silent about such a protracted, gentler sinking, I wonder if the speed and violence of the Empress played more into the silence than typically assumed. Titanic had social etiquette preserved almost to the end, prioritizing the most vulnerable, while the Empress had it shattered almost instantly. -Titanic's children had a 50% chance of survival, the Empress' had a 3% chance. -75% of women survived Titanic, but that dropped to 13% on the Empress

​@Reticulating Splines absolutely! A lot of women and children in Titanic's lifeboats didn't know they were widowed or fatherless until rescue, whereas there was no hiding that with the Empress. I don't know if I'd be able to recall the latter experience without breaking down, it was probably easier for survivors to avoid the topic entirely.

It's unsurprising if not many people wanted to talk about this after having been through it. I certainly wouldn't. By 1918 everyone in Canada and Britain was emotionally wounded anyway, and the WASP custom is to be quiet about your trauma. It would be interesting to read a social history of how people dealt with grief in the era between the wars.

I don't think there was even enough time for the social order to break down. The ship was plunged into darkness only after 6 minutes, listing heavily, sunk in a cold water, in a fog. Either you were lucky enough to be in a place where you could survive or you weren't. Most women and children were deep in ship's steerage, unless they reacted extremely quickly, they were doomed.

@misarthim 6 I imagine women were far less likely to survive this fast sinking because A. They were probably less likely to be the one who would have gotten up to 'go see what was going on', especially if they had children, and especially given they were likely in nightclothes B. They had children and either would have been slowed by them, or refused to leave them (I'm sure some men were affected in the same way, but there were probably a lot fewer men traveling with children than women, especially given the contingent of Salvation Army men) C: If they had to climb steep angles on stairs or the side of ships they were probably less prepared to do so, not strong enough, or hampered by old fashioned clothing D: Given the dire situation and panic, self preservation likely won out in some cases and women were probably less likely to win a struggle to push through crowded spaces E: Perhaps hampered by heavier clothing in the water, or less stamina in the water All just theories, would be interested to know if there is any historical evidence or research

@Britt N Yeah, there was a major outrage over the lack of adequate lifeboats on the Titanic at the time, which prompted them to change regulations with the establishment of the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) in 1914, which still governs maritime safety to this day.

@Mr. Battle it wasn’t just the lack of lifeboats with titanic. It was also that the whole evacuation was disorganized and chaotic. The lifeboats were leaving without being at capacity and not all the life boats were even deployed. Had titanic possessed a life boat seat for every passenger aboard, it wouldn’t have saved even one life because of how inefficiently the evacuation was conducted so that even the resources that they did have were not exhausted.

@Britt Nexactly. Also, since the Titanic was constantly marketed as being “unsinkable”, many people on board were not taking evacuation seriously. others thought the ship still had time until it went down completely, so waiting on the deck was preferable to waiting on the lifeboats for help to arrive

I think one of the reasons the Titanic gained so much noteriety compared to much more brutal sinkings such as the Empress' is entirely down to how easy it is to romanticize her demise. With the Empress, you can't tell any stories of triumph or bravery or old loves deciding to die together. The band didn't play until the end. The women and children died, same as the men. There was no dramatic rescue ship steaming through a field of 'bergs to help the survivors. These people drowned like trapped rats in a metal coffin, in so little time that most barely had time to exit their cabins, nevermind make it onto the deck. You can't make movies or plays about a horror story like this without feeling the finality of Death creeping up your spine, and it feels like a desecration of a mass-grave to even try to make up fiction in the face of such a terrifying reality. This sinking makes me feel so very small and scared, and I'm simply watching a video about it on KZbin. Had this been my loved ones' final moments, I might, too, want to prefer to speak of happier things, to preserve the memory of their lives rather than wonder how lost and scared they must've been at the end. I hope these poor souls found peace, or was given a happier life in their next go-around. With a death like this, they deserve as much.

And it wasn't boasted to be "indestructible" like the Titanic was. Titanic was made out to be this impossibly huge, luxurious ship that couldn't be destroyed, so when it hit the iceberg, it showed the hubris of man. With Lusitania, they didn't tout it as indestructible, and I'm assuming they didn't with the Empress. Still, they need to share the Empress' story more, because the way the crew handled things and got all those boats out, yeah it's depressing, but it's a remarkable feat of humanity.

And for the crew to launch 5 lifeboats in 14 minutes, this should be more discussed with shipwrecks. It took Titanic an hour to launch the first lifeboat despite knowing the ship was going to sink in an hour, 2 at most. The Empress Crew launched 5 in just 14 minutes while lurching to the side. That's incredible.

​@K OThe crew of the Empress of Ireland knew she was going to sink the moment the SS Storsad (i think thats the name) created a giant gash in the mid section. The Titanic's crew saw the iceberg go past and maybe a very small amount might have seen the iceberg hit but again very few. It took a while to walk around the *BIGGEST SHIP IN THE WORLD AT THE TIME* and when they knew that Titanic was doomed they wasted no time in preparing and launching the lifeboats. I am one of those people who belive more lifeboats would've resulted in a bigger loss of life becuase they had 1hour & 50 minutes to launch 20 lifeboats. They launched 15 without incident. (Collapsible C/D was scrpaing along the hull the entire time it was being launched. Lifeboat 15 nearly crushed 13 and Collapsibles A & B had to be floated off) and couldn't launch the last two. Also considering the fact that nearly nobody wanted to leave the Titanic they were told, "It was just a lifeboat drill." Think for a moment that you were told to leave your house as a safety precaution whilst a blizzard was going on outside; you would be reluctant to leave the warmth of your house. I kind of waffled a bit but overall you can't Co pare the Titnaic to the Empress of Ireland.

The Titanic took 2.5 hours to sink, so maybe they thought they had time to go back and prepare, not knowing that both boilers were taken out and the lights were about to go out. I think in times of chaos and panic, people go through 'stages of grief' almost. A lot of these people were probably still confused, in shock, and in denial that this could even happen let alone the entire ship sink in 14 minutes. I don't know what I would do in that situation, if I was even lucky enough to be on the deck to where I even had a chance of survival.

The fact that they launched anything and save over 200 people is still pretty amazing when you account for a 14-minute sinking. It takes humans that much time just to analyze a situation and plan. To have launched boats and gotten anyone out of there is a miracle and speaks to the competency of at least some of the crew.

@Britt N moder cruise ships now use their lifeboats as tenders/ferries for excursions and island visits. It's also important to remember how much taller modern cruise ships are when compared to ocean liners. From the top to the water line you're looking at about 15 stories, so it's safer and faster to have the boats at the bottom of the superstructure.

There was a Spanish ocean liner called Príncipe de Astúrias, the most luxurious Spanish ship at the time, that sank near Brazil. It was a foggy day around 4:00 in the morning, and the captain only realized way too late they were too close to the coast, and the sea was also rough on that day. She crashed against the reefs and opened a hole from stem to stern. The water reached directly the boilers, that exploded, and caused a failure in the electrical system, making it impossible for them to call for help. She sank in only 5 minutes. There was no time for even thinking on launching the lifeboats. From the nearly 600 people aboard, they rescued 143, I guess, but rumour has it that more than 1000 people died, as some speculate the ship was taking immigrants in secret, fleeding from the was (she sank in 1916). Sometimes I think I'd like to see an animation of her sinking, sometimes I don't, it was hard enough watching this one of the Empress, and I can only imagine the despair and fear the people who actually faced these situations could have felt in those moments. May the souls of all those who died on the sea rest in peace.

That does sound horrible. Crashing into a rocky shore is one of the worse fates. Like the SS Atlantic. To die so close from safety is somehow extra sad, to me anyway. And even if you get a boat off, it's likely to be smashed on the rocks and kill everyone, like the boats of the SS Atlantic.

For some context, the St. Lawrence is essentially an oceanic river (there are two different words in French for seaways like it and rivers) more akin to the English Channel than most inland rivers. You can’t just swim to shore easily, and with the fog and darkness, plus the fact that the passengers would have been unfamiliar with the area, you couldn’t know where the shore was. It is also very rocky and not conducive to swimming or getting out of the water. Women especially were weighted down by heavy clothes (not to mention would have been more likely to be asleep, less likely to know how to swim, and more likely to be caring for children). Children would not be able to swim it at all. People on the shore were asleep and couldn’t see either to help once they woke up. Absolutely terrifying and heartbreaking. All things considered, that 465 people survived is miraculous. It was a very unfortunate accident. Yes, one can try to assign blame, but that isn’t about to bring anyone back from the dead, nor is it likely to prevent a similar accident in the future. Obviously, coming up with better protocols is important, but one doesn’t need blame for that.

The fog's timing couldn't have been worse. When it came, the Empress was in the middle of a maneuver where she had to take a long turn to starboard, before turning back to port to straighten out. The Storstad saw the Empress turning across its bow just as the fog came in, making the crew think the Empress was going to make a conventional port-to-port passing, and so it turned to its own starboard to make this happen, not knowing the Empress was turning back to port at the same moment, putting them on a collision course. If the fog had come just a few minutes earlier, the Storstad wouldn't have seen the long starboard turn of the Empress, and had it come a few minutes later, the full maneuver would've been completed, and the Storstad would've kept its regular course.

This was breathtaking. Although there have been RT sinkings made for RMS Empress of Ireland in the past years, only this one made it really close as it could have looked like. I watched it in a true terror. It was so quick, I can't imagine how horrifying disaster it must have been. Great that such a video was made, it was really needed and this tragedy really deserves more attention. Not only Titanic have sunk. I'll tell it once again - this is what I love YT for.

@LITTLE Awww!😇You're so sweet! How lovely of you to take time out of your day to leave such a nice comment. Your kindness touched my heart! Our family thinks of my Great Aunt every day. Her remains are still inside of the Empress. My family fervently hope and pray that she passed as peacefully and as quickly as possible. But sadly, it seems as though no one who were trapped deep inside of the ship, sleeping or awake, were able to leave this world in peace. 😔In which case, we can only hope that it was very fast, and that the passangers who were not awoken by the Storstad piercing and gutting the precious Empress, weren't terribly alert when the ship was in her death throes. Obviously that is wishful thinking because the alternative is so unimaginable, so terrifying, and so hopelessely claustrophobic, and so desperate, that I would have taken a big deep breath to drown faster because of the complete unconscionable abject terror. If it were me, the fear and anguish would be insufferable. Personally, I wouldn't be able to stand it. But that's me!

My mom was the Salvation Army of Canada’s official historian and an amateur historian of Canadian Salvation Army history before that. She knew everything about this and regularly gave lectures on it. She was very concerned about divers who wanted to explore the bring up artifacts from the wreck and regularly had to advocate for leaving the site alone since it is the gravesite for a lot of people. The Canadian Salvation Army lost a lot of people in this wreck , including a lot of the Canadian SA leaders. It was travelling to England and was the only way for Canadian SA people to reach the International Congress at the time. I think she even insisted that the divers return the ship’s wheel to the ship. Not sure what they did. I really disagree with taking artifacts from shipwrecks. Unless the family of the person who is involved specifically requests it. Otherwise, it is desecrating a graveyard.

Another disaster within the US you might find interesting is the capsizing of the Eastland in Chicago on July 24, 1915 - killing ~900 people right there at the dock. The cause of the capsizing? A large number of passengers apparently rushed to the river side of the Eastland to watch ships go by. (edit) The ship was ruled unstable in a hearing. So you had an unstable ship, and a sudden shift of a majority of passengers over to the river side. The two things together caused her to roll. The Eastland was bought by the Navy and converted into a military training ship and renamed USS Wilmette. She served without further incident until her scrapping after World War II.

Why did the Storstad not stop? Why did they keep moving despite the fog? Why did they not hear the whistles? Wouldn’t they have seen the Empress as they got closer, or could fog have really been so thick that they could avoid hitting the center of the ship? Were they held accountable? I have so many questions.

Great video, Mike! Best Empress of Ireland sinking animation I have ever seen. Unfortunately, I just don’t believe the Empress was stationary during the collision. The river currents doesn’t seem strong enough to dislodge the Storstad from the Empress so soon after it plunged 25 feet into the Empress’ hull and then drift so far away. Some documentaries I have seen suggest that the Empress was slowing down at the time of the collision - had momentum - which is consistent with the testimony of the Stordstad’s crew that the Empress was moving when the collision occurred. This would explain why the Storstad quickly dislodged herself from the Empress and why she drifted so far away after the collision as if the river currents were responsible for the dislodge and the drift, she probably would have only drifted to just aft of her stern or at a distance where her lights could still be seen in the fog.

It's not controversial that her engines had been restarted and she was making some amount of headway. The issue is if she was stopped when the Storstad appeared out of the fog. If she was moving already there may have been a chance to maneuver but stopped there wasn't. Besides her telegraph has been recovered and shows Full Ahead as do the telegraphs in the engine room. She was making some speed and the engines where near full power, which doesn't take long, provided you have a full head of steam. They handle a bit different than diesels, simce the power comes from the boilers. You open the valve and full power hits the engine and it rapidly climbs to full rpm. While a diesel starts out with more torque from a standstill a steam engine rapidly gains torque as rpm increases, so once it gets going (easy on a ship, less so on a locomotive) it has full power in some amount of seconds. Call it 10 seconds or so. A diesel has to both make the energy and convert it. A steam engine converts readily available heat energy into kinetic energy.

Perhaps you could do a video over another ocean liner named "admiral nakhimov" (originally called "Berlin") that sank just outside the port of Novorossisk after colliding with a carrier. It took her just 7-8 minutes to sink. And all of that happened at year 1986. I would live to see your video on that tragedy aswell.

Hello Mike. A small suggestion, what about making videos with ship's that sunk in categories that are only associated with Titanic. For example 5 ships that sunk due an iceberg Or 5 ships that sunk in their maiden voyage. Bc I was around some ocean liners community and I was amazed about how many people think that only Titanic sunk in maiden voyage. That would be a perfect chance to tell the least known stories.

Absolutely nightmarish stuff. Imagine the fear and confusion of hearing all around you screaming as you're all being swallowed by the abyss, in the dark, in the cold, knowing you'll be dead soon and so will your loved ones. Knowing you're just one among many, and none will be saved, in a way, you're completely alone. And if you're one of the last to go, you'll live enough to realize all the screams fading, the night becoming quieter, until only the sounds of the wind and the water can be heard... That night must have been absolute and utter hell. Also, amazing job by the people who put this video together, I should be sleeping rn, hope this doesn't give me a nightmare.

Really fascinating! At the end there, you mention the ship hesitated before the last plunge and several people hoped it was resting on the bottom. That made me curious how far down the bottom was, and seeing that in terms of the scale of the ship. I'm not familiar with the Saint Lawrence myself, but some googling puts the wreck at a depth of 45 metres (a little under a third of its length). It would be an interesting visualisation to show just how far off (or indeed how reasonable) such a belief was.
