Second Class Waiter Richard Proffer, wrote a letter to Walter Lord stating:
"... You also talk about a young French girl stumbling into no.9 lifeboat, there was actually a Mme Aubert, and her maid. I was standing by no.9 to pass the passengers into the lifeboat, and also I got away in No.9, when I passed Mme Aubart into the boat, she probably missed her footing, because she cried out: ma jambe, ma jambe (my leg, my leg)".

From The Daily Mirror, May 13, 1912, an interview with Mme. Aubart:
"Marie got into the lifeboat, and then I."
Testimony of William Ward, page 597
Mr. WARD. Then I went aft to No. 9 boat.
Mr. WARD. There were several men in the boat then to assist in getting the women in. One woman had already fallen and hurt herself a little - a French lady. The purser told two more men to get in and assist these women down into the boat.
