Photo of the day: 100 years laterFlowers are cast into the water off of the Southampton dock in Hampshire, England, by descendants of passengers who perished when the Titanic sank. The crowd gathered for a memorial to pay their respects on April 10 at the dock between births 43 and 44 — the point of departure for the ill-fated passenger liner. On April 14, 1912, just four days into her maiden voyage, the “unsinkable” Titanic hit an iceberg and foundered into the depths of the northern Atlantic Ocean. Because of a shortage of lifeboats and a lack of safety protocols, 1,514 of the 2,224 passengers aboard were killed.
