William Herrick:Engineer, Employed at Eagle River, Hurled to his death late Saturday

Caught in a drive pulley and thrown to an almost instant death, William Herrick, who was to have been 60 years old , lost his life in the power plant of the Eagle River Utility company at Eagle River on a late Saturday afternoon. Herrick was for 28 years a resident of Rhinelander.
Herrick, alone in the plant where he was employed as an engineer, apparently was caught on the belt of a shaft and hurled to his fate. Investigation showed that he probably lived for half an hour after the accident occurred and his body was found several hours later.

Herrick was alone.
