Last survivor of 'unsinkable' Titanic dies at 97

• AP
Millvina Dean, who as a baby was wrapped in a sack and lowered into a lifeboat in the frigid North Atlantic, died Sunday, having been the last survivor of 1912 sinking of the RMS Titanic. She was 97 years old, and she died where she had lived

1912-2009 seems to be three years shy of one hundred to me. What am I missing?

Apparently AP isn't too good with math. If Ms. Dean was two months old when the Titanic went down in 1912 then she would have been 87 years old; not 97. Other than that this was a noteworthy story.
