A Perilous Leap for Life
In this interview from the BBC series entitled "Survivors of the Titanic," Major Prentis describes his flight from the RMS Titanic following her fatal collision with an iceberg. Albeit short, Prentis' story is not lacking in suspense. Listen as he describes his flight for freedom, which was facilitated by a hidden life jacket and an impressive 100 foot plunge from the stern of the ship. The interview was originally conducted April 15, 1966.
