Titanic Memorial At Sea 99 Years Later

Memorial wreath for Titanic's 99th Anniversary


The U.S. Coast Guard International Ice Patrol marks the 99th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic by dropping three donated memorial wreaths near the British luxury liner’s resting place in the North Atlantic. It is an annual rite for the Ice Patrol, which was created to monitor iceberg danger as a result of the Titanic’s sinking.

The Titanic struck ice and sank on its maiden voyage in international waters on April 15, 1912, killing 1,522 people.
