SS Wasp Shipwreck

My ancestor Augustin LeBourdais allegedly was the sole survivor of a ship the SS Wasp that was wrecked on Nov 22, 1971 in the Magdelan Islands. Many details of this story have become exaggerated over time and I have been unable to find any information anywhere about the ship the SS Wasp, all of which causes me to wonder whether this is local folklore more than something that actually happened. Augustin supposedly had part of his legs amputated due to frostbite. That actually did happen but was it due to a shipwreck as suggested in the story? Anyone have any other info about this?? Eleanor
