Titanic images: New 3D shots capture sunken megaship

This photo August 2010 provided by RMS Titanic Inc., shows the last davit remaining on the wreck of RMS Titanic. These lifeboat cranes were used to hoist the Ship's wooden lifeboats over the side and into the water during Titanic's sinking. Many of the boats launched soon after the sinking were not close to full—passengers refused to believe the seriousness of the situation.
