100 Years Ago: Help is finally here!

At last Carpathia has arrived!  Immediately the crew sets about rescuing Titanic survivors from the lifeboats.  Final count: 705 people and 13 small boats.  All that was left of the greatest ocean liner in the world.

Soon other ships would arrive in the area including Californian soon after her radio operator got up, turned on his radio and found out what had happened overnight.

The morning papers would soon report the first news to a waking world that would hardly have believed it possible.
