Did you see this story about a formerly
unknown Titanic child victim identified through DNA?
Five days after the passenger ship the Titanic sank, the crew of the rescue ship Mackay-Bennett pulled the body of a fair-haired, roughly 2-year-old boy out of the Atlantic Ocean on April 21, 1912. Along with many other victims, his body went to a cemetery in Halifax, Nova Scotia, where the crew of the Mackay-Bennett had a headstone dedicated to the “unknown child” placed over his grave.
The rest of the story is here, including details about the mitochondrial DNA used to identify the little boy as Sidney Leslie Goodwin, a 2-year-old who was traveling with his parents, Frederick and Augusta, and five siblings from England to Niagara Falls, New York.
None of the Goodwins (seen above) survived the sinking; no bodies were ever recovered, other than the newly identified Sidney.

Ninety-nine years after the sinking, an unknown Titanic child identified through DNA now rests in peace.
