Magin Falls Dead at Plant While on Inspection Tour

City Commissioner Henry Magin fell dead at 11:20 AM today while making a tour of the city incinerator plant with other city officials. 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.
