Last Titanic survivor is gone

Millvina Dean, believed to be the last survivor of the Titanic, died at 97, her friends confirmed Sunday. Dean was just an infant when the RMS Titanic — publicized as "practically unsinkable" and the largest passenger steamship at the time — struck an iceberg on the night of April 14, 1912, during its maiden voyage from Southampton in southern England to New York. The ship sank less than three hours later, killing more than 1,500 people.
