Shortly before Titanic's break-up, we see Charles Lightoller (Jonny Phillips) clinging to an overturned lifeboat. Lightoller actually went into the water just after the fall of Murdoch. He was either attempting to hide the suicide or a rescue. The suction of the ship pulled him down and Lightoller was underwater at the time of the breakup.
