||Four men are scalded to death and 10 are badly burned when a steam pipe bursts on the Navy cruiser Tennessee during tests of ship's top speed off Port Hueneme.
The most seriously injured are brought ashore and treated at Angelus Hospital after the ship docks at San Pedro. Three burn victims die in the next few days, raising the toll to seven. The men were buried at San Pedro's Harbor View Memorial Cemetery.
