Vavrek Ivanski

Vavrek Ivanski, a miner employed at the Flannagan Mine Mo. 8 of the Beech Creek Coal & Coke Company was electrocuted Wednesday of last week while returning from his work. He was coming out of the mine when he caught hold of the iron end gate to steady himself and at the same time raised up. The back of his head touched the live electric haulage wire, forming a complete short circuit. He gave a convulsive shudder and toppled over in the car dead. Ivanski was a Hungarian, about twenty-one years of age and unmarried.
