HISTORY WAS MADE ON THIS DAY IN 1956

See the source image

At 11:10 p.m., 45 miles south of Nantucket Island, the Italian ocean
liner Andrea Doria and the Swedish ocean liner Stockholm collided
in a heavy Atlantic fog. Fifty-one passengers and crew were killed
in the collision, which ripped a great hole in the broad side of the
Italian vessel. Miraculously, all 1,660 survivors on the Andrea Doria
were rescued from the severely listing ship before it sunk late the
next morning. Both ships were equipped with sophisticated radar systems, and authorities were puzzled as to the cause of the
accident.
