Man Drowned From Dory On Middle Bank
Sch. Aplar, Capt. Carl
Peterson, came into port at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon with her flag at
half-mast for the loss of Narcisse Budrow, one of her crew, which
occurred on Middle bank, yesterday forenoon.
The dories were out, making a set and Capt. Peterson
bore the vessel down to pick up the men. All of the dories had been picked up except
Budrow's and when the vessel was run down to where it drifted, it was
found to be empty. One tub of trawl had been hauled, and the other was still in the
water, with one end fast to the dory.
Capt. Peterson cruised about
the place for some time, looking for some sign of the man but finally gave it up and
headed his craft back to port
Just how Budrow lost his life
will never be known, but it is believed that he was stricken with a heart attack or a
dizzy spell and fell over the gunwale of the dory, unable to even shout an alarm.
The unfortunate man was a resident of East
Boston, but his family is at Petit De Grat, Cape Breton, where he was born. The
latter was notified by wire last night of his loss.
