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.
