Beverage Firm Worker Fatally Stricken

Camden Courier Post – May 3, 1949

John A. Herrmann, 52, Bell avenue, Barrington, and employe [sic] of the Camden County Beverage Co., Fillmore and Bulson streets, collapsed and died yesterday while cleaning a vat.

Dr. Vincent T. McDermott, medical examiner for the company, pronounced the man dead after Rescue Squad 3, under Acting Battalion Chief Winfield Leviseur, worked for an hour in an effort to revive the man. Coroner Inglesby announced he would hold an autopsy today.

Frederick Martin, president of the company, said Herrmann was an employe for seven years. He said the discovery was made when a fellow worker entered the vat to speak with Herrmann and found him unconscious.
