The Daily Banner, May 16, 1912:
"Proceeding, Mr. Burgess said: 'I then went to the boat deck at my station, which was No. 13 boat on the starboard side. As we stood there awaiting orders someone told me to go and call the other bakers who were off duty and had turned in... On returning we were ordered to get in the boat and lower to A deck and take in women and children... Then came the most exciting moment of my experience. We had got down within five feet of the water when they stopped lowering, those above evidently thinking we had reached the water. On looking up we saw No. 15 boat coming down on top of us.'"
