While more than 1,500 people died, Prentice talked about how he was one of the lucky ones to make it out alive. When Prentice went up to the “poop deck,” he saw how quickly the Titanic was going down.

He recalls- “All of a sudden, she lifted up quickly, and you could hear everything crashing through her,” he said. “[...] I thought, now I’m going to leave. I was hanging onto a board; we had two boards, starboard, and port.”

After going higher and higher in the air, Prentice was “dropped in” the sea while wearing his life jacket. He went on, saying, “I hit the water with a terrific crack. Luckily I didn’t hit anything when I dropped in. There were bodies all over the place. Then I looked up at the Titanic [...], and I could see the bottom, and then gradually she glided away, and that was that. That was the last of the Titanic.”

But even though Prentice was off the ship, he wasn’t safe. He remembered thinking that he didn’t want to die, but at the moment, his chances of surviving out in the middle of the ocean were slim. He was getting ‘colder and colder’ due to the cold waters of the Atlantic, but by God’s grace, a lifeboat found and rescued him.
