Seriously Injured at Sea
Died at Hospital

Arthur B. Fay, engineer of the fishing steamer Nirvana, Capt. Lee Murray, passed away at the Addison Gilbert Hospital yesterday, at the age of 35 years, 4 months, and 24 days, following an accident at sea on Tuesday.

While setting around a school of mackerel, his arm became entangled in the rope of the hoister.  The member was so badly mangled that amputation was necessary at the Addison Gilbert hospital, where the man was taken after being landed at Rockport.   His name was put on the dangerous list and he lingered until yesterday, when death ended his sufferings.

The deceased was a native of Sandy Point, N. S., where he was born March 4, 1890.  He was the son of Jeremiah and Emily (Stewart) Fay and came to this city when a young man.  He had been employed in machine shops about the city and was rated a good workman and well liked.  Of late, he had been engineer of steamer Nirvana.

He married Augusta Schmorrow Sonia, by whom he is survived, together with two step-children, Robert M. and Mary Grace Sonia.  He also leaves a mother in Nova Scotia.
