Last Survivor of the Titanic Dies at Age 97

by shanai on May. 31st, 2009

The last survivor of the Titanic died today. Millvina Dean was 97 years old. Although she did not remember the disaster (she was only nine weeks old when her family boarded the ill-fated ship), her story intrigued many. She was the ship's youngest passenger. Her mother and brother also survived, but her father did not. This short video features Millvina telling a bit of her story. You can read the full story here.

I am very glad I wasn't on the titanic. It sounds very scary. I don't know anybody in my family that was on the titanic. A lady 2 or 3 years ago just died and she was on the titanic. I am writing this at the science mueseum. It is my second time here. Did you know that some children were apart from there familys? It is very true.
