    Last Titanic survivor dies at 97
    The last survivor of the sinking of the Titanic has died aged 97.

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

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

    Miss Dean, who remembered nothing of the fateful journey, died on Sunday at the care home in Hampshire where she lived, two of her friends told the BBC.

    Her family had been travelling in third class to America, where they hoped to start a new life and open a tobacconist's shop in Kansas.

    Miss Dean's mother, Georgetta, and two-year-old brother, Bert, also survived, but her father, Bertram, was among those who perished when the vessel sank.

    The family returned to Southampton, where Miss Dean went on to spend most of her life.

    Despite having no memories of the disaster, she always said it had shaped her life, because she should have grown up in the US instead of returning to the UK.

    She was fond of saying: "If it hadn't been for the ship going down, I'd be an American."

    In 1985 the site of the wreck was discovered and, in her 70s, she found herself unexpectedly in demand on both sides of the Atlantic.

    "I think sometimes they look on me as if I am the Titanic!" she said after a visit to a Titanic convention in America. "Honestly, some of them are quite weird about it."

    This proves that the film Final Destination is based on fact.

    My great, great, great uncle was the leader of the band on the Titanic. He was so important that he was even portrayed and had lines in the movie.

    When the boat's sinking, he's the one that goes "Alright boys, how about one last song." And they play when the boat sinks. Stupid fuck now that I think about it, he should have gotten on one of those little boats, or kicked the stupid girl off the piece of wood she was floating on.
