Albert Cake

Return to C Surnames.

Seattle Star
August 19, 1907


Albert Cake, age 20, was dashed to death shortly before 7 o'clock this morning in the plant of the Denny-Renton Clay and Coal company at Renton this morning.

Cake, who is an oiler, was engaged in his work when he was caught by the belting on the main shaft and whirled upward with such force that two 2 by 10 rafters were broken off from the ceiling, where his body struck. He was whirled over and over on the belt, and when the machinery was stopped, every bone in his body had been broken.

D. F. Cake, a brother of the victim of the belt, was struck on the head and shoulders by a piece of the broken rafter, and injured.
