An iceberg made a 20-meter gash, allowing water to spill into the bottom of the ship. Six people drowned in the water that was spilling into the ship's first floor. The water was able to slip through the cracks under the doors of the ships, trapping people in rooms. Many people in the lower rooms died, waiting for their rooms to be filled with water.

After three hours, the ship began to submerge. After two more hours, it had sunk.
