Haunting pics: Remembering the Titanic 102 years later

17 April 2012

On April 14, 1912, the "unsinkable" Titanic hit an iceberg and went down.

In observance of the 102nd anniversary of the ship's sinking, a 2004 image was reissued to the public in an uncropped version, which shows a coat and boots buried in the mud at the site two-and-a-half miles below the ocean's surface, where the legendary passenger liner now lies.
