In the Atlantic off Newfoundland, a 20-tonne steel plate from the wreck of the "Titanic" was hoisted from the ocean floor. Expedition organizers believe the rusted steel plate formed part of the cabin belonging to first class passengers Walter and Mahala Douglas of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Records show Mahala Douglas made it to a lifeboat. Her husband did not. Titanic historian Charlie Haas described the recovered prize.
