Phila. Man Drowns, Another Dives to Death in Jersey

City Fireman Killed in 18 Inches of Water at Pennsgrove

A Philadelphia man was drowned and another died of a broken neck in a swimming accident in Southern New Jersey resorts yesterday...

Mr. Call, whose neck was broken in the Pennsgrove accident, died in the Salem County Hospital at Salem, N.J. a short time later. He had been a member of the Bureau of Fire for twenty-three years, and at the time of his death, was an engineer attached to Engine 2, Warnock and Berks Streets.

With his brother, Joseph, an operator in the City Hall Electrical Bureau, and some friends, he had gone to Pennsgrove for the day.

During the morning members of the party had been diving off a board into the river, and Mr. Call returned to resume the sport in the afternoon, not realizing that the recession of the tide had reduced the depth of the river at the point to a scant few feet.

Dr. Davis W. Green, of the hospital staff, said that death had been almost instantaneous. The dead man, who was the son of former Magistrate Joseph Call, is survived by his widow [Lena Erb Call] and one son, Joseph. (Philadelphia Inquirer, front page, July 7, 1930)
