The Sinking of the Andrea Doria - On July 25, 1956, approaching the coast of Nantucket, Massachusetts, bound for NY City; Andrea Doria collided with the east-bound MS Stockholm of the Swedish American Line in what became one of history's most infamous maritime disasters. Struck in the side, the top-heavy Andrea Doria immediately started to list severely to starboard, which left half of her lifeboats unusable. 1660 passengers and crew were rescued and survived, while 46 people died.
