Timothy E. Heagerty, 41, master, tug “Thomas Wilson,” with a crew of three men, rescued the officers and crew of the schooner “Yukon,” Ashtabula, Ohio, October 20, 1905. Captain Heagerty took his boat out of the harbor during a gale blowing 52 m.p.h. and, with the waves on Lake Erie running 14 feet high, steered it in the trough of the sea, past the sinking schooner, close enough to enable the men on it to leap to his boat.
