MEETS DEATH BY FALLING
CINDER WHEELER AT POWER HOUSE DROPS FROM CONDENSER AND IS KILLED.
Harley E. Green, a cinder wheeler at the power house, fell from a ladder on the water condenser, while at work this morning about 8:30 o’clock and was almost instantly killed. He died shortly after being placed in the ambulance.
Green was found lying on the concrete floor at the foot of the ladder by fellow working men. No one saw him fall. An ugly gash in the left side of his head showed that he had struck the floor with much force.
He was 25 years of age and has been employed at the power house for several months. He is survived by his mother, Mrs. F.A. Barton, 621 East Williams street, and one son, four years old.
An inquest was held this afternoon by Justice W.B. Jones, acting coroner.
