Sorry to report but the story is not true. Reuter's did report the death of Herbert Johnson (age 104) and that he had served aboard Carpathia in 1912. This was based on a news report out of Durban, South Africa. However today Brian Ticehurst of the British Titanic Society reported on my discussion list that this claim was throughly researched previously and found untrue (meaning he never served on Carpathia). Reuters no longer distributes the news story.
just a question are there any survivors still alive? i know it may be far fetched at this late date--91 years later. I'm new to this site and investigating the titanic. my husband and i just saw the exhibit at the museum of science in los angeles, ca.
I have read about the survivors at HERE, but Lillian Asplund`s biography states she, along with her little brother and mom were saved in Lifeboat 15, not 4.
And, if they were to be saved in Lifeboat 4, I`m sure Carl O. V. G. Asplund would of find a collapsible boat nearby to at least save his three young children, who were left onboard.
