Titanic's final death

The oldest known survivor of the Titanic died on Sunday. Millvina Dean, who was all of two months old when the ocean vessel hit an iceberg in waters off Newfoundland in 1912, passed away in a nursing home in London at age 97.

Dean was lowered into a lifeboat on that April night and survived along with her mother and two-year old brother. Her father was one of the more than 1,500 passengers and crew who perished in the disaster.
