From the archives of The Sunday Chronicle (1921)
DISABLED STEAMER – Rapids King is Beached in St. Lawrence River Rapids –
Ogdensburg, N.Y., July 16.- Strenuous efforts were being made tonight to remove 330 passengers form the steamer Rapids King, of the Canada Steamship Line, which was disabled in the Long Sault Rapids of the St. Lawrence River late today. The craft was disabled by the breaking of a rudder chain. the tiller was used to beach the vessel in seven feet of raging waters. No boats were able to approach the disabled raft because of the swiftness of the current.
