How many boiler-room workers where trapped by the water tight doors? : LUSENET : TitanicShack : One Thread

This was a nerve-wracking scene where, when the order came to shut the water tight doors, several men were shown to have made it by the skin of their teeth. I imagine that at least several men, if not a dozen r maybe more, were trapped and drowned that way. Any info?

Many of the boiler room crew could have escaped via ladders and stairs to a higher deck. Those incapacitated would have definitely been in trouble.
