I once worked with a chap who had been a fleet manager for bulk carriers and oil tankers. He told me a story about a bulk carrier that sank off Australia in heavy seas. The radio op was actually talking to their local office when the ship sank and it went down so quickly that the radio op was cut off in mid-sentence...... Power failure or sudden rush of water we will never know.
