Aug. 18, 1955 - Young man buried in ice at plant: John May, 19, Rt. 6, discovered a new way to beat the heat this morning but it's a cinch he won't be recommending his method of keeping cool to anyone else!

Young May, an employee of the Liebmann Packing Co., began his work day by making what he thought was a routine inspection of a storage tank which holds 70 tons of ice used for refrigerating box cars at the Liebmann yards.

Herb Liebmann Jr. said the tank contained about 55 tons of three-inch ice bricks when the youth entered it.

Apparently the ice began to give way from the sides of the tank and young May was buried under several tons of the ice bricks.

President L.E. Liebmann, uncle of the youth, said another employee heard the boy scream for help and 30 men with shovels immediately were sent to the tank to free him.
