Ware, MA Snows Pond Drowning, Jun 1908


Was Swimming in Snow’s Pond and Got Beyond His Depth.

John Szarek, 18, was drowned in Snow’s pond at Ware about 6 o’clock last evening, while swimming with two other Poles. He had ventured in above his depth, against the advice of his companions, who saw him sink without being able to render any assistance. The body was recovered in about half an hour, and after Medical Examiner W. W. Miner had viewed it, Undertaker J. T. Brosnahan took the body in charge and had it taken to the rooms of N. E. Jenks. Szarek leaves a father, mother and sixe younger brothers in Galicia, Austria, but no relatives in this country. He came to Ware in little over a year ago, and was employed in the trim shop of the Otis company.
