Margaret Devaney, age 19, from Ireland, was below decks in 3rd Class (Steerage) peeling potatoes when she decided that she needed some fresh air. With coat in hand she headed up the many flights of stairs to the Main Deck. As she was nearing the top of the final flight she felt a tiny bump, the collision with the iceberg. On the lifeboat with about 50 other terrified souls, she survived.
