About Charles Joughin
Charles Joughin was born in Birkenhead, and his survival story is one of the most miraculous. After learning the ship was going to sink, the RMS Titanic baker returned to his room and drank a huge amount of spirits, which luckily saved his life.
Thanks to the alcohol in his system, Charles swam in the water for a number of hours, and even when he did find furniture to cling on, his legs remained in the water. He, along with 705 survivors, were picked up by RMS Carpathia hours after the ship sank, with Charles reporting that he didn’t even get his hair wet the whole time he remained in the icy water.
