Gunnar Tenglin's Account

Fort Wayne Journal Gazette

Bunar Tonglin [sic], a Swede, was saved in the next to the last boat which left the Titanic. Before getting into the boat he placed two hysterical women in another boat. The he heard a cry, and looking up, he saw a woman standing on the upper deck. The woman, he said, dropped from her arms her baby, which Tonglin caught, and gave it to one of the women he had put in the boat. Then he got into his own boat, which was lowered, and shortly afterward came two explosions, and the plunge downward of the TItanic.
