Drowned on Georges While Hauling Trawls
Thomas Fraser, 55, of East
Boston, one of the crew of sch. Elizabeth W. Nunan, was drowned
while hauling trawls on Georges last Saturday.
The vessel arrived at the Boston Fish Pier
with her flag at half-mast. Capt. Richard Stanfield reported that Fraser
with other members of the crew were out in single dories attending their
trawls. When it came time to pick the men up Capt. Stanfield found Fraser's
dory empty. The oars were missing. It is believed he fell out of the dory as a
result of heart failure and was drowned.
The unfortunate man is survived by his wife
and one child.
