Magnus OLSON, a carpenter about 50 years of age, who resides at 83 Ellicott Street, was killed instantly about 10 o'clock this forenoon, while assisting in raising a house at 269 Willard Street. THe corner of the house settled and crushed him to death. The house at this location was being remodeled. Jacks had been placed under the building and it had been lifted some distance from its foundation. Another worker at the scene said that a moment before the accident occurred, he saw Mr.Olson working under the house and warned him that it was dangerous. His warning came too late, however and the house suddenly settled and pinned the unfortunate man between the sill and the foundation. His shoulder was crushed and his neck was broken. Death was practically instantaneous. Horror stricken, the men worked frantically to lift the building sufficiently to remove the body. It was slow work and the police ambulance, which had been summoned, arrived long before the task was completed.
The body was placed in an ambulance and taken to an undertaker's morgue. Coroner Illston was called and he will investigate the accident.
Mr. Olson was for many years one of the leaders in the work of the Swedish Baptist Church and at the time of his death he was a member of the board of deacons.
