Suspended from a chain, a 13-ton of slab of the hull of the ocean liner RMS Titanic is tilted upright Sunday, Aug. 25, 1996, by diesel-filled salvage bags. Salvagers hope to raise the section to the surface Wednesday, Aug. 28, 1996. More than 1,500 of the 2,200 passengers and crew on board died when the Titanic sank 84 years ago.
