From The Syracuse Herald, April 23, 1912:
"I saw two men shot when I was on the top deck. One was a steward whom an officer had commanded to help with the boats. The steward refused and the officer shot him dead. An Italian jumped in the boat as it was being lowered away, landing on top of women and children. The boat was drawn back up and the man was taken out and shot. As the boat was let down I grabbed the sides wondering what was going to become of us. I never was at all frightened. When we reached the water we could see that the Titanic was fast sinking and the six men who were rowing pulled us away as fast as they could. .... Our boat had about thirty women in it and it was so filled that I could not move."
Possibly this was a garbled/creatively edited version of her saying a man was dragged out of her boat and she heard shots. Both fit collapsible C, but not just that boat. The '30 women' fits C better than #14, but it's hard to tell based just on this.
New York Sun, April 23, 1912:
"I didn't get away until the last boat but one."
If she got into collapsible C, the 'but one' could be referring to collapsible A, which she may have seen being readied up on top of the Officer's Quarters.
We cannot be positive, but Collapsible C fits the accounts we have better than other lifeboats.
