During the sinking, Emmie escaped the Lusitania in lifeboat 15. While in the lifeboat, she claimed to see submarine raise its flag after the sinking. Her lifeboat was subsequently picked up by the Wanderer, also known as Peel 12. Emmie Hill and William Inch remained lifelong friends. Newpapers have erroneously reported her name as Caroline Hill.
