French Expedition Finds Titanic's Secondary Safe

August 15, 1987|From Deutsche Presse-Agentur

PARIS — The French expedition searching the British luxury liner Titanic said Friday that it had located only a secondary safe in the wreck, and not the purser's main safe as originally thought.

Bad weather in the stormy North Atlantic was preventing retrieval of the safe, according to a spokesman for Taurus International, part of the consortium backing the expedition. Efforts will continue to locate the ship's main safe, he said.

The Titanic sank on her maiden voyage from Liverpool, England, to New York in 1912 after hitting an iceberg.
