Youth Dies as He Swims In Canal; Heart Failed
Believed to have been the victim of a heart attack, Benjamin Achterberg, 23 years old, son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Achterberg, Tonawanda Creek road, town of Amherst, sank in the Barge Canal while swimming with a number of other young people at Pickard's Bridge early last evening. The body was recovered 15 minutes later by members of the North Amherst Fire company, of which the youth was a member. An inhilator was used by the First Aid squad. of the Eggertsville Fire company in an unsuccessful attempt to restore him. Physicians said that no water was found in the man's lungs, giving rise to the belief that he was the victim of a heart attack.
Not Expert Swimmer
Achterberg was not an expert swimmer,..He had been swimming with other youths of Pickard's Bridge in the canal all Summer and was considered able to handle himself fairly well in the aquatic sport. The point where he went down was less than 1,000 feet from the Achterberg home and only a short distance east of the bridge over the canal in the small settlement.
Besides his parents the youth is survived by two brothers, Leonard and Maynard, at home, and two sisters, Mrs. Jacob Dexheimer, town of Wheatfield, and Lorna, at home. Medical examiner Charles E. Long was called. The body was removed to Hamp's morgue on Adam street. Dr. Long has not issued a certificate of death. The funeral will be held Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the residence and at 2;30 o'clock at the St. Paul's church in Martinsville, the Rev. F. A. Hinners officiating.
