DROWNED" MAM'S STORY. I Aivid A. Frank, a young Swedish fire- man, who is now staying at a sailor's lodging-house in St. Mary-street, has had the unusual experience of having his death announced, and his photo repro- duced in a Swansea contemporary, as having been drowned off Brest, France. Aivid is still very much alive. The facts gathered from him by our repre- sentative, who called on Friday, are that he was fireman on board the Koop- mndel," a Norwegian ship, which was sunk last August. Frank was for eight hours in the water before being rescued, with other members of the crew, by a. lifeboat. While on the life- boat, which capsized th ree times, five of tem (who were practically without clothing) succumbed to the cold and ex- posure, but the remaining seven were picked up by a French steamer and taken to Havre. Frank, who had injured his foot in'the lifeboat, was detained in hospital at Havre for a month. The crew was made up of three Swedes, three Belgians, three Danes, one Norwegian, one Swiss, and one Indian. Of these two Danes, one Nor- wegian, and one Swiss were drowned.
