Frank G. Kramer and L. G. White, employes of the Iowa Gas company at Iowa Falls, were asphyxiated in a company gas tank. White entered the presumably empty tank to make some repairs and was almost immediately overcome. Kramer, manager of the company, sought to rescue White and also entered the tank. The presence of gas caused him to become weak and he called for help. Before other employes could arrive he was unconscious. The other men attempted to pull the bodies out with grappling hooks, but were unable to do for an hour, when both were dead.
Transcriber’s Note: Find a Grave shows he was born September 10, 1876 and died Dec. 20, 1915. He is buried in the I.O.O.F. Cemetery in Indianola..
