Remembering the Titanic, 100 Years Later
Loading the Titanic’s lifeboats was not simple or completely safe. Many passengers suffered injuries. Anna McGowan jumped from the ship into a lifeboat. The fall left her with injured limbs and problems with her eyesight and hearing. Anna Sjoblom was thrown into a lifeboat and a crewman landed on her head when he jumped into the boat. This left her with head and spinal injuries.
