Stranded liner in awful peril as storm rages
Stranded liner in awful peril as storm rages published in The Press. The article describes the Clyde Line steamer Cherokee stranded on the Brigantine Shoal in the middle of a storm with 60 passengers on board. The life-saving crews from the North and South Brigantine Life-saving Stations and a wrecking tug were sent to rescue the passengers and free the ship but neither were successful. The lifesaving boat of the North Brigantine crew washed ashore and wrecked under the Steel Pier. The outlook for the situation is described in detail.
