How Mrs. Meyer escaped

Le Journal

Mrs Meyer told reporters that her husband and herself hurried to the lifeboats as soon as the first jolt was felt. She wanted to stay with him but he strongly pushed her inside a boat and told her about their nine year old son, for whom she had to survive.

---------- Original article in French ----------

Mrs Meyer dit que son mari et elle se précipitèrent vers les canots dès le premier choc. Elle voulut rester avec lui mais il la poussa de force dans le canot et lui parla de leur fils, de neuf ans, pour qui elle devait vivre.
