He stepped from a platform and called to James Carr, superintendent of streets, to “catch me.” He slumped into Carr’s arms. Carr and William F. Augustine, Courier-Post photographer, rushed him to Cooper Hospital, but physicians pronounced him dead. He had been ill of heart trouble for more than a year.
