U-Boat Attack in North Atlantic

Although it was believed the ship would say afloat for some time, the ship started to list and sink suddenly by the stern. Four of the lifeboats capsized and some of the rafts could not be unsecured in time. ... Many were lost due to exposure to the cold during the four hour wait for rescue ships to arrive.
