3 isn't quite correct, the SS Californian was thought to be around 8 miles away from the Titanic as she was going down, there was crew on the Californian and they did see the rockets fired by Titanic but assumed them to be celebrations on her maiden voyage, the radio officer was asleep as there was no requirement for 24 hour radio cover.   
As a result of the disaster, amongst many other laws brought in, it became law for 24 hour monitoring of radio traffic and the laws on firing rockets at sea were clarified.

the first one is not quite right
animals that are unforunate enough to die near the lake do get pertrified due to high pH (10,5-...)
