SS Norge in the late nineteenth century. X
On the 28th of June, 1904 Danish passenger liner SS Norge ran aground near Rockall in the North Atlantic Ocean and sank.
Over 635 people died, with the highest number of victims coming from Norway.
The liner sank twelve minutes after the accident, pulling many who had tried to jump to safety underwater with it, and drowning them.
Those who survived were saved by British and German ships. One of the survivors was Norwegian poet Herman Wildenvey.
