Cave-In Kills Local Workman

Buried under several feet of dirt when a ditch collapsed at a Springfield sewer line project yesterday, a 40-year-old worker died before rescuers could reach him. Rushed to Cox Medical Center after oxygen failed to revive him at the scene of the tragedy, Carl Schupbach, Highlandville, was pronounced dead on arrival. The victim and Bob Donham, 17, Highlandville, employees at Milnes Plumbing and Heating Company of Rogersville, were installing a sewer line beside a house at 2317 College when the accident occurred about 5 p.m. After using a backhoe to dig a ditch about 12 to 16 feet deep, Schupbach was working in the bottom of the trench when the west side began crumbling. Young Donham, who was standing outside the ditch, told Officer Joe Kind he saw Schupbach jump up in a futile effort to keep free of the falling earth, but a large section of the wall caved in and completely buried him. Donham ran for help and police and two fire department rescue teams from stations 2 and 6 were quickly sent to the site. They used shovels and their hands to frantically dig away at the earth after Donham pointed to the spot where the victim had been standing. A backhoe at the site was used to dig out an area beside Schupbach as soon as an operator was rushed to the scene and fireman applied oxygen as soon as Schupbach’s face was uncovered. Fire chief Bob Harrison said the victim showed no signs of life. A veteran of the Korean War, Schupbach was employed as a plumber and heavy equipment operator for the Rogersville firm. He is survived by his wife, Alta L.; a daughter Mrs. Kath__ Barner, Nixa; a son, Michael F. of the home; a stepson, Duane McKinney, Fort Pierce, Fla; his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Schupbach, Highlandville; a brother, Fritz of Route _ , Ozark; and four sisters, Mrs. Hazel Phipps, Carthage, Mrs. Imogene Young, San Antonio, Tex,, Mrs. Mary Gahagan, Highlandville, and Mrs. Joe O___man, Springfield.
