      Moreton Bay Courier Saturday 24 September 1853 p2
      Fatal Accident.-The steamer Hawk, on her passage down from Ipswich last Tuesday, called at Mr. Lumsden's wharf, on the Brisbane, to take in some cargo, when, as a young man employed on board was in the act of throwing out the quarter line to haul the vessel in, he slipped and fell into the river, and soon sank. The boat was at once put out, but although every practicable effort appears to have been used, the body was not recovered until ten minutes after the accident. All attempts to restore animation were unsucessful, and the dead body of the unfortunate man was brought to Brisbane in the Steamer. His name was John Ryan.

      The coroner's report was given on the 28 September, 1853.
