Ship RMS Carpathia ship travelled regularly between Rijeka, Croatia (at that time known as ‘Fiume’, Austro-Hungarian Empire) and New York to transport immigrants seeking a new life in America. On the night of the 14-15th April 1912 the Titanic sent out SOS distress calls for help after colliding with an ice berg which the Carpathia, which was at that time travelling from New York to Rijeka then picked-up and headed to its assistance. The Carpathia managed to save over 700 people.

One crew member of the Carpathia, a Croat, Josip Car, held onto to a life jacket from one of the survivors of the Titanic and this historical item was later donated after his death to the Maritime and History Museum in Rijeka.

To su Josip Čor i Ivan Sekalec. Jedini dokaz nalazi se u zavjetnoj kapelici Gospe trsatske u Rijeci kojoj je Josip Čor 26 godina nakon potonuća poklonio sliku s motivima Titanicova potonuća.
