San Pedro, CA Steamer Warrior Caught in Storm, May 1902


Salt Lake Man Drowned at San Pedro---Gale at San Francisco.

Los Angeles, Cal., May 19.---The roughness of the sea caused by a gale produced a panic among the 150 passengers on the steamer Warrior, which was returning from Santa Catalina Island to San Pedro yesterday evening. During the excitement S. S. Knight, a conductor in the employ of the Salt Lake railroad, was washed overboard and lost. K. C. Herrick of Spokane, Wash., jumped overboard under the impression that his wife had been swept into the sea. He kept afloat until rescued by a boat's crew.
