Far Rockaway, L. I., September 12 - John A. Lutjen, aged 40 years, was drowned in the ocean by the capsizing of a rowboat yesterday afternoon. He was employed as night watchman in the Ocean House at this place, and was out fishing in a rowboat with Arthur O'Keefe of Sheridan boulevard, this place. While several hundred feet off Simis' Beach the little craft was struck by a wave and overturned. The occupants were thrown into the water and Lutjen, who could not swim, was drowned. O'Keefe managed to cling to the capsized boat and was rescued by Life Guard David Benson of Caffrey's Beach. The body of Lutjen was found a short distance from where he was drowned. The body was claimed by Lutjen's mother and sister and was this morning removed to his late home.
