Thank you for allowing me to answer your interesting question.
Unfortunately I can find no details about the accident but I believe I
did find enough information to prepare you for inquires with the Coast
Guard and other authorities.
The name of the fellow you are asking about is officially listed as
BERL BASS, 136-24-1255 born May 21, 1929. According to the Social
Security Death Index the accident apparently occurred sometime in
Social Security Death Index
Further, armed with this information I managed to find another
credible reference to his death. According to the Columbia University
Health Sciences Library College of Physicians and Surgeons Obituary
Database, Dr. Berl G. Bass of Mamaroneck, New York, died on October
Columbia University Health Sciences Library
With his properly spelled name, middle initial, date of birth, social
security number and exact date of death you should have all the
information you need to get an accident report, death certificate or
post-mortem report from the County Coroner.
I hope you find that my answer exceeds your expectations. If you have
any questions about my research please post a clarification request
prior to rating the answer. Otherwise I welcome your rating and your
final comments and I look forward to working with you again in the
near future. Thank you for bringing your question to us.
