Description

See below for English description.

Le matin du 29 mai 1914, à 1 h 55, deux jeunes amis, Sarah et Albert, se tiennent sur le pont de l'Empress of Ireland, un paquebot qui assure la liaison entre le Canada et Liverpool, en Angleterre. Soudain, un terrible impact se fait sentir. Sarah et Albert ne tardent pas à comprendre que leur voyage est en train de tourner à l'horreur. Alors que le bateau commence à s'incliner, les membres de l'équipage dirigent les passagers qui hurlent vers les canots de sauvetage. C'est la catastrophe!

 

At 1:55 AM on the morning of May 29, 1914, two young friends, Sarah and Albert stand on the deck of the Empress of Ireland, a ship sailing from Canada to Liverpool, England.

But excitement soon turns to terror, as the friends feel a sharp jolt. The ship begins to tilt. People scream. Stewards order passengers to head for the lifeboats. It is a full-on nautical disaster, and only one question remains.

Will they survive?

Original title: Survival: Shipwreck!
