Read Time:39 Second

The story goes that during the most dramatic hours after hitting the iceberg, a Finnish whaling vessel was approaching to assist in the rescue, but Samson’s captain, after seeing the Titanic’s lights, believed that the US Coast Guard- They were pursued to confiscate their cargo, according to the author Nacho Montero in his book “Titanic Hour”. The whaler was in transit from Canada to US waters, without a permit, and was trafficking sealskins. After a few days they arrived on the Icelandic coast and there they found out about the tragedy they had left behind, without coming to help. The crew, knowing they could have saved the passengers, made a pact of silence that lasted half a century. Henrik Naess, Samson’s captain told the truth as he was dying.
