The baby boy was found floating, but frozen to death, with his face towards the sky in the freezing water, he was neatly dressed: Coat with fur collar, flannel dress, vest of wool and brown leather shoes. His unfortunate mother had dressed him as warmly as possible because she knew it would be very cold.
At                  Fairview Lawn Cemetery in Halifax, thousands of visitors gather                  around a gravestone with the words “Unknown Child.”                  There rests the 13-month-old flaxen-haired boy who was the youngest                  of the 1,500 victims who perished when the Titanic sank. Around                  his neck he wears a copper medallion with the words “Our                  Baby”. It was a gift from the Mackay-Bemers crewmen to the                  little baby they found after the Titanic sank. The crew who had                  searched for bodies wanted to pay for the burial despite the fact                  that the White Star Line wanted to pay the burial expenses. The                  baby was placed on a bed of roses in a little white casket. 
in 2002 he was indentified by DNA testing as Eino Viljami Panula, he went down with the Titanic along with his mother Maria and his Brothers Ernest 17, Jaakko 15, Juho 7 and Urho 2
Father Juho travelled on a different ship, for the rest of his life he missed his family and never found peace.
