Meanwhile on Titanic, wireless operator Harold Bride informs Captain Smith that Carpathia has responded, that they are traveling at full speed, and that they will reach Titanic's location within 4 hours. Smith is stunned that Carpathia is the only ship responding to their rescue. Titanic has at most 2 hours to live.
