I don't think it split in half.
Originally they said it split in half, but apparently the belief now is that it split into three pieces.
The surviving ship officers said the ship sank intact; the surviving passengers said it broke up first.
As it is, the ship rests on the ocean floor in at least two main pieces. Salvagers think it probably broke up when it headed for the ocean floor.
Bob Ballard found the wreck of the old ship some years back, and on the ocean floor, it was in two main pieces. It broke in half, and each half ended up in different places.
