Leeds Mercury, Yorkshire, April 16, 1912

The White Star liner Titanic, the largest ship in the world, has met with an accident by colliding with an iceberg. Wireless telegraphy played an important part in bringing assistance upon the scene, and the passengers were effectually removed to other liners that hurriedly steamed to the rescue. The Titanic was on her maiden voyage. The liner is constructed on lines that make her almost unsinkable, and it is thought that she will readily be towed to safety.
