I suppose that a lower percentage of people in 1912 knew how to swim than the percentage of people who know how to swim today. I'm sure that if the Titanic sank in the summertime, and if the water was warm enough to not get hypoethermia, some of the people in the water would die due to drowning just because they did not know how to swim. But I'm sure that some of the people on the Titanic knew how to swim. How did the Titanic passengers who died in the water and knew how to swim die? Did these Titanic passengers in the water who knew how to swim become unable to swim due to hypothermia and die of drowning? Or did these Titanic passengers in the water who knew how to swim die of hypothermia without drowning?
