    • biYOUNG MAN BROWNED ACCIDENT AT BURLEIGH COOLANGATTA, November 24, 1928/b/i.
      Arthur Frater, who. as reported In "The Telegraph" on Friday, lost his life, In the heavy surf at Burleigh Heads, was about 22 years of age, and was a son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Frater, of West Burleigh. He had a bait set some distance from the beach for the purpose of catching sharks, and swam out to it. When some distance from the shore he was caught in the eddying currents of a fairly, heavy sea and swept towards the North.- Frater made valiant efforts to fight his way to safety, and held his own agnlnst the current for some time. The Life-saving reel was manned, and Raymond Noonan, who donned the belt made a good swim through choppy seas. In the face of a strong north easterly wind. With nearly 400 yards of the line out, Noonan got to within 20 or 30 yards of Frater, who suddenly disappeared, and Noonan was unable to locate him. Frater was not seen again, and it is surmised that he became exhausted. [5]
