Benjamin & Charles Hendrickson -- Navesink ice boat accident, 11-Feb-1906
Edward van Embden: "On a February day in 1906, 17-year-old Charles Hendrickson and his brother Benjamin took a boat out on the Navesink for some ice sailing. The yacht hit a patch of thin ice and the brothers were thrown into the water. Benjamin pulled himself out and to safety but Charles died, trapped under the ice.
"To this day, boaters sailing on the river during the winter have reported seeing the tortured face of a young man, struggling for his freedom from beneath the sheets of ice.
"It’s stories like these that are told by Genevieve Kelly, historically accurate and often unnerving Red Bank tales and their paranormal extensions: today’s believe-it-if-you-see-it ghost stories. "
