Charles Joughin was the RMS Titanic's chief baker who had 13 people working under his supervision. When the Titanic was about to submerge in water, he jumped into the extreme cold Atlantic water and sat on a reversed lifeboat for three hours until the help arrived. He claimed that he had not felt cold because of the high amount of whiskey he consumed. The external temperature of the ocean was minus two degrees centigrade at the time of sinking, and an average person who fell in the water didn't survive longer than five minutes.
