BERLIN (AP) – Werner Franz, believed to be the last surviving
crew member of the German airship Hindenburg that crashed
77 years ago, died of heart failure  August 13 in his hometown
of Frankfurt, Germany. 

Franz was a 14-year-old cabin boy when the hydrogen-filled
Zeppelin caught fire and crashed in Lakehurst, New Jersey,
on May 6, 1937.

The sole living survivor of the Hindenburg crash is now Werner
Doehner, who was an 8 year old passenger traveling with his
family.
