Says Caribou Sinking Was Worst of Seven Experiences
Seaman Eric Andrews
, son of Mr. And Mrs. Chas. Andrews, returned home during the past week on leave after his rescue from the torpedoed Caribou. This sinking made the seventh torpedoing that he has survived in the war. But, he says, "I want to forget the Caribou. The screaming of the women and children was awful. It was the worst experience I ever went through."
When the Caribou was torpedoed, Seaman Andrews was awakened by the explosion. The first thing he did was to open his suitcase and secure a flashlight, then he made for the deck. Everything was in darkness. When he came to the stairway, it was crowded with people making their way up and he stayed at the foot of the stairs to show the way with his light until all had gone up. When he himself reached the deck, the ship was taking the final plunge. Her boilers exploded and he was thrown into the sea.
After he came to the surface, he states that he went under again, probably from the suction of the ship. He rose to the surface again and all this time he had the presence of mind to hold on to his flashlight. To this fact he owes his life in large measure. By its light he saw a barrel bobbing on the water and swam over to it. Then he saw a piece of wreckage and made for that. Finally he saw a raft and making his way to this he stayed there until he was picked up after daylight.
Seaman Andrews lost all his belongings but was uninjured and is thankful for his escape after an unforgettable experience.
