Last Titanic survivor dies at 97





Millvina Dean was nine weeks old when the liner sank in the early hours of 15 April 1912 on its maiden voyage from Southampton after hitting an iceberg.

The disaster resulted in the deaths of 1,517 people in the north Atlantic, largely due to a lack of lifeboats.

The 97-year-old, who remembered nothing of the fateful journey, passed away on Sunday at the care home in Hampshire where she lived, a friend told the BBC.
