Inspector Falls to His Death At Water Plant for Park Cities

A construction inspector Monday fell thirty-nine feet to his death through the roof of a pump house at the new Park Cities Water District plant at Hines and Burbank.

He was Earl John Wolf, 43, of 4239 Holland.

Wolf was an inspector for Powell & Powell, engineers supervising the building of the new water plant. He stepped on a quarter-inch-thick piece of insulating glass on the pump house roof, Deputy Sheriffs C.E. McLaughlin and P.H. Martin said. The glass gave way and he fell through.

B.A. Reif, foreman for Powell & Powell, said he was told that Wolf struck a crane rail during his fall and fell head downward on the hard shale underneath. Reif was not at the scene of the accident.

Wolf died in surgery a short time later at Parkland Hospital.

It was the first serious accident at the new plant, which has been under construction for a year.

Wolf came to Dallas about three years ago from Denver, Colo.

He is survived by his wife and two children, E. J. Wolf Jr. and Mrs. James McDowell [sic], both of Tracy, Calif.
