"Sinking Ship is a suspenseful piece about a sinking ship, like the Titanic or the U.S.S. Arizona. The ship is sinking fast into the cold, icy water. No one is sure to survive. Screams fill the air. Then the ship disappears into the cold, murky waters. All that is left are a couple of life boats with a small amount of people in them. Less than ten percent of the passengers and crew had survived. The ship had sunk."
