A Sunday Drowning Accident

A Polock couple named Quiva (Kujawa), living at Medina, went out in a boat on the canal for a pleasure ride Sunday. They were accompanied by their little son and a young woman. Near Hasting's bridge in turning around a gust of wind capsized the boat. Mrs. Quiva was drowned, but her husband succeeded in saving the boy. The young woman had already left the boat. The drowned woman was about 35 years old.

Sad Drowning Accident

Sunday afternoon, about four o'clock, Mariana KUJAWA, a Polish woman, was drowned in the canal. Her husband and son were in a small boat with her and had rowed down the canal about two miles for the purpose of landing a neighbor. On their return, at a point near Hastings' bridge, they met a double lumber boat which made such waves that it overturned the light row boat and threw the occupants into the water. The husband swam ashore with the child and was returning for his wife when she went under. She was thirty-one years of age. Coroner Munson did not deem an inquest necessary.
