Boy Delivering Groceries Dies Of Heart Attack
John Hurd, Jr., 17, West High Senior, Collapses at Stair Head.
John Henry Hurd, jr., 17, of 1013 Sheffield avenue, collapsed and died, apparently of a heart attack, while delivering groceries at 1045 West Sixth street, about 2:45 p.m. yesterday, Coroner Sidney D. Smith reported.
The youth had just deposited an order of groceries in the kitchen of an upstairs apartment occupied by Everett Fremont, and was at the head of the stairs on the way out of the building when he collapsed, it was reported.
Stumbled on Way Up
He died a few minutes later before a physician could reach him. Mrs. Helen Miller, who lives downstairs, said she heard the youth stumble and drop his basket of groceries on the stairs while going up to the apartment.
Attempts to revive him by artificial respiration failed, Mrs. Miller said.
John Hurd had been helping Raymond Bixby, a neighbor living at 1008 Sheffield avenue, deliver some groceries for the Bixby Delivery yesterday afternoon.
Born in Clinton.
Hurd was born Clinton, Ia., Jan. 16, 1924, son of John and Ollie Hurd. The boy came to Waterloo in 1927 and had since lived here. He had attended west schools and was a senior in West High school.
Surviving are the father; the stepmother and a stepbrother, Robert Mulkins, all at home; two foster sisters, Mrs. Rosemary Walker, 316 Cottage street, and Mrs. Alvena Cousins, Wadena, Ia.
The body was taken to the Kearns Garden chapel.
