Full Text

      Chicago, Sept. 17 - Peter Van Dyck, a deckhand on the tug C.M. CHARNLEY, had both his legs crushed between the dock and the sides of the tug yesterday, and it is feared that his injuries will prove fatal. The CHARNLEY was about to leave the wharf to tow the Western liner ROME down the river, and Van Dyck was sent aft to throw off the line. In some way his legs became caught as the tug moved away from the dock. An ambulance was called, and the injured man was taken to the Polyclinic Hospital.
