The two men rescued were severely burned while swimming through the flaming sea to a tug. A majority of the crew were trapped in the_ forecastle of the Vedrà and perished.  Plowing in a torrent from a rent in the cofferdam, gasoline inviided the eiigine-room. In a second it had Ignited and spread to all parts of the i doomed vessel, also pouring through rents in the hull into the sea.  So suddenly did the fire break out when the vessel grounded that only  four of the ship’s company had time to reach her weat'uer side. These were the chief engineer and three sailors.  Reaching the weather side of the vessel the chief engineer gave the three seamen with him lifebelts he had picked up In his flight, and mounting the rail, plunged headlong into the sea, trusting to his ability as a swimmer to reach a nearby tug which was endeavoring to pull off the Vedrà. The engineer had taken only two or three strokes when a huge wave picked him up and dashed him against the side of the steamer, killing him. Two of the seamen Immediately followed the engineer and swam until they were picked up, but in doing so were badly burned. The other seaman, unable to swim, feared to take the plunge and was burned to death where he stood.  Meanwhile a number of lifeboats had come upon the scene but they were unable to give aid to the imprisoned men In the forecastle whose screams could be heard above the roar of the flames.  The Vedrà, which was bouud from i’ort Arthur, Te.xas. for London, is a total loss. She was commanded by (’aptain Brewster and was owned by | the Associated Oil Carriers Company, of London.

What our Customers Say:

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
