Titanic Study: Jack died for nothing! He COULD have survived if he’d climbed onto Rose’s raft
It is a debate that has raged since Titanic became one of the most successful films of all time: Did Rose leave Jack to die by not letting him up on the makeshift lifeboat as they floated in the ocean?
And now a U.S. television show has carried out a series of tests that show Leonardo DiCaprio’s character could have survived the disaster had he lifted himself onto the raft from which Rose, played by Kate Winslet, was plucked.
The Discovery Channel’s Mythbusters recreated the treacherous conditions after the Titanic sank in 1912 and, through hypothermia tests, discovered Jack would have survived the freezing conditions if he had climbed out.
