Samuel James Vanstone
October 12th, 1928
DETAILS: While at home, Constable Vanstone witnessed a motor vehicle accident outside of his house. In a heavy rainstorm, he rushed outside to investigate and extricate the people trapped under the vehicle. As he crossed the road, his umbrella obscured the fact that the power lines were hanging down from the damaged pole and came into contact with his umbrella, electrocuting him to death.
