    Titanic Survivor Millvina Dean Gets 'Rescued' By Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet

    Millvina Dean - Last Titanic Survivor Gets Help from Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet

    Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet are teaming up again. But not on the big screen.

    The "Titanic" stars are lending a hand to the last survivor of the real-life ship.

    DiCaprio, Winslet, and the movie's director have donated $30,000 to subsidize Millvina Dean's nursing home bills.

    Dean was just two months old when the Titanic sank in 1912, killing her father.

    And she's had trouble paying her bills since breaking her hip 3 years ago.
    She's even sold some of her Titanic memorabilia to pay for her health care costs.

    DiCaprio and Winslet say they hope Dean will be able to rest easier knowing her future is secure.

              That's pretty cool. I've always liked Leonardo and Kate as actors. This just shows how cool of people they are.

                  Now that is something really good to do. It's nice to hear actors doing something good like this for someone, it shows how good of people they really are.
                  Kudos to Leo and Kate for doing that.

                          Very sad. R.I.P. Millvina Dean

                          I read that scientists are predicting that the ship won't last past 50 years from now. Soon Titanic will only be a mere memory.

                              The last Titanic survivor sails off into the sunset

                              The last Titanic survivor sails off into the sunset after years of anonymity

                              MILLVINA Dean, the youngest passenger on the Titanic and the last living link with history's most famous sunken ship, has died at a nursing home in Hampshire, England, aged 97.

                              Born in London, she was about eight weeks old when she and her brother Bertram, aged 23 months, set sail in third class on Titanic with their parents, Bertram snr and Georgetta.

                              The Deans, who had sold their London pub and planned to open a tobacco shop in Wichita, Kansas, were originally booked on another White Star liner, but a coal strike prompted a transfer to the Titanic, on its maiden voyage.

                              Titanic set sail from Southampton on April 10, 1912, and was south of Newfoundland's Grand Banks on the night of April 14 when it struck an iceberg.

                              Millvina and her mother, who had lost track of her son in the panic and chaos, were seated in lifeboat 10 and were among the first steerage passengers to escape the sinking liner.

                              Millvina was so tiny that she had to be lifted into the lifeboat in a postal sack. Their boat drifted in the water for several hours before they were rescued and taken aboard the Carpathia, a ship that had answered the Titanic's distress call....
