There's Now A Real-Time Video Of The Sinking Of The Titanic

Daily Mail

Want to be bummed out for the rest of the day about a tragedy that happened over a century ago?

If yes, then this video recreating the sinking of the RMS Titanic in real time is for you.

The historic passenger ship struck an iceberg on April 14, 1912 right before midnight. It took only a few hours to go down. Of the approximately 2,220 passengers and crew on board, more than 1,500 died.

Now, you can relive that horror through this animated video of a very accurate model of how the ship sank.

The video was created by the developers behind the soon-to-be-released game Titanic: Honor and Glory, which is based on the ship's maiden voyage and sinking.

The collision starts about a minute in, so sit back, relax and enjoy your nightmares about this! (Leonardo DiCaprio not included.)
