Johan Asplund, letter to his mother, May 24, 1912:
    “We followed the crowd, and when we got up there, the lifeboats were lowered and they said that women should go first. The first boat was lowered, and Einar (Karlsson) and I agreed that we would go in the second. I entered but when Einar was ready to enter he was boxed on the ear, and when I saw that I jumped back up on deck….. When the next to last boat had been lowered a bit, I decided to jump. Einar agreed. When it was down 3 meters, we jumped.”

The lack of any shooting near their lifeboat suggests that the "next to last" lifeboat might possibly have been boat #13 on the starboard side.
