Segment 2, beginning at 22:26: The tragic story of the 1856 shipwreck that left behind just one 22-year-old survivor.
When a ship traveling from Liverpool-to-New York collided with an iceberg, surviving passengers boarded five life boats and were set adrift into the cold waters of the North Atlantic. Four boats were lost at sea and the fifth boat, originally carrying 13 people, would, after nine days, have just one alive passenger. Today, we talked with the author of a new book that weaves together the stories, and timeline, of the tragedy.
- Brian Murphy, reporter at The Washington Post and author of "Adrift: A True Story of Tragedy on the Icy Atlantic and the One Who Lived to Tell about It."
