The Heikkinen part of the book I'm Going to See What Happened, written by Inez Perry, Miss Heikkinen's daughter, says:
"She added (Mrs. Perry) 'I don't know how my mother reached the boat deck. Regarding what 'lifeboat she was in - it could have been 10,12,14 or 16- possibly on the port side of the ship.' Mrs.Perry remembered her mother telling her of a man who tried to save his life by crawling into the bottom of her lifeboat, which was supposed to be for women and children. She continued 'I don't recall her saying anything about having difficulty getting into one of the last lifeboats to leave the ship.'
According to Mrs. Perry, her mother spent six hours in a lifeboat before being rescued. The memories of the screams and cries of the people in the water, and those who were left on the ship would remain with her for the rest of her life."
Miss Heikkinen mentioned a "man under the seats". Nora Keane, very likely in #10, was among others who said same thing about a man under the seats of #10.
