Charles Anderson Caught in the Machinery

Sustains Injuries Which Result in His Death a Few Hours Later. Said to Have Been Careless

LONG BEACH, May 16 - Charles Anderson, 27 years old, who had been employed for eight months as a mate on the North American Dredging company's suction dredger, now engaged in excavating for the inner harbor here, was caught in the machinery of the dredger about 9:30 o'clock this morning and received injuries from which he died about 5:30 o'clock this afternoon.

Anderson tried to step over some gearing wheels and his right foot was caught in the spokes of one of them. He was thrown into the air and over the wheels. His right leg was completely severed about midway between the knee and hip and his left leg was broken at the same place.

The man fell to the deck of the dredger between the wheel and the foundation timbers. Physicians were summoned and he was removed in an ambulance to a private hospital. Until late this afternoon it was thought that his life could be saved, but he died a short time after being operated upon.

The captain of the dredger says that Anderson's work did not call upon him to the part of the dredger where the accident occurred and that it is very unsafe for anyone to venture where he did.

Anderson was a native of Sweden. He came to this country two years ago. He is survived by a brother who is employed as a deckhand on the dredger.
