Charles James Agar fell while he was working on the construction of Bishop Airport in Flint, Michigan. He suffered a fractured sternum.
Agar and George Cranmore, employees of the emergency relief commission, were standing on the scaffold, about 18 feet above the ground, and lifting a board when Agar dropped his end and toppled off, according to Deputy Sheriff William H. Coleman. The autopsy showed Agar was not killed by the fall but by a heart attack, Dr Johnson said." This article was in the May 26, 1934 issue.
