Last Remaining Survivor of the Hindenburg Disaster Dies

The last remaining survivor of the 1937 Hindenburg Disaster has reportedly died at the age of 90, AP reports.

Werner Gustav Doehner reportedly died earlier this month in his New Hampshire home. He was the only person left of the 62 passengers and crew who survived the May 6, 1937, fire that killed his father, sister, and 34 others.

Doehner, speaking of his experience in 2017, he and his parents, older brother and sister were returning from a vacation in Germany on the 804-foot-long zeppelin to Lakehurst Naval Air Station in New Jersey.

His mother threw him and his brother out of the ship before she left, too, but his father was unable to escape.
