Quayle (Tug), overboard, 3 Nov 1883

Full Text

Port Huron, Nov. 1 - Capt. A. Stowell and the crew of the schr. GEORGE M. CASE did an act equal to that of Capt. Angan on Lake Erie, some years ago. Last night, while coming down Lake Huron, a young man, lookout on the tug QUAYLE, fell overboard, and was not missed from the tug's deck for some time. The schr. CASE came along and hearing the cries of a man overboard, the crew were ordered to man the lifeboat and make a search until daylight if necessary. It was very dark and blowing hard from the northwest, and after a short time she picked the half exhausted man up, but could not board the vessel on account of the heavy sea. They then rowed the yawl to the river, where all were cared for and awaited the arrival of the CASE.
