Jacksonville, Jan. 6 - Crawford Hiscock, aged 29, chief engineer of the tug boat “Emile”, accidentally fell overboard into the St. Johns river early last night near New Berlin and was drowned. The body has not been recovered. The “Emile,” of which Capt. John Emile is master was pulling a tow to the city from Mayport, when the accident occurred. Chief Hiscock was standing on the ship’s rail, when he lost his balance and fell into the river.
Members of the crew, seeing Mr. Hiscock fall, jumped into the river. The boat was stopped. After diving several times, the men could find no trace of the chief.
Employees of the Seashole Funeral Company were notified. They searched all night in the vicinity where the engineer fell, but no trace of the body has been found, they said today.
Chief Hiscock lived aboard the tug. He was not married. He is survived by his father, living in West Palm Beach; two brothers, Herbert and Irving, also of West Palm Beach and Summer Hiscock, of New Smyrna. For some years he was engaged with his father in the steamer service between Palatka and Georgetown. Times-Herald, Friday, 9 Jan 1925.
