What Really Happened in the Final Moments of Titanic?

The world of entertainment would not be complete without movies and when we talk about movies, there are some movies that were able to leave a mark in our minds and hearts. It could be a story of adventure, love, horror, comedy or whatsoever as long as you find yourself living in the moment with that film, then you can say that you are in for a good ride, right? One movie that we could label as an ICONIC and RECORD-BREAKING would be TITANIC, It is an epic romantic disaster film inspired from the unfortunate events when RMS Titanic sinked. If you have watched the film, you would wonder what happened when the ship was sinking back then? A documentary was able to show how it is to relive the final moments of Titanic.

Titanic was a British passenger liner that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean in the early morning of 15 April 1912 after colliding with an iceberg during her maiden voyage from Southampton, UK, to New York City, US. The sinking resulted in the loss of more than 1,500 passengers and crew, making it one of the deadliest commercial peacetime maritime disasters in modern history. - Wikipedia
 According to www.documentaryaddict.com:

They said they found long strips of metal. Unfortunately, the submersible's camera equipment malfunctioned and they had no proof of what they saw. But this set in motion a new theory. Maybe these long strips were from the bottom of the ship. If so, then Titanic just didn't graze the side of the iceberg, but it actually ran over part of the iceberg too. We learn that an iceberg does not go straight down below the water (like a cliff); instead, the water causes the iceberg to form a shelf below the water.

Hence, it's now theorized that Titanic somewhat ran aground on the iceberg. If so, in addition to the gashes on the side, maybe there was also significant damage on the bottom, explaining how the ship sank in less than three hours. If that were true, it could also explain why the front of the ship is relatively intact while the stern is crushed upon itself.
