ONE MAN KILLED, FIVE INJURED AS DESERT DUST DEVIL RIPS WEBB WAREHOUSE TO BIT

THE INJURED ARE TRAPPED BY THE FALLING ROOF

Whirlwind is described as the largest ever seen by observers

By Chris Cole

A giant dust devil swirled through the open end of the Del E. Webb Construction company warehouse on East 36th Street yesterday afternoon, killing one worker and injuring five others as the building collapsed in a rain of splintered wood.

The body of Sebastian K. Merrill, 31, of 1521 North Santa Rita Avenue, was found buried under sections of a fallen roof truss. Sheriff’s deputies said they believed he died almost instantly. The building was under construction.

The injured workers, all employees of the Webb company, were identified as Adolph Flores, of 114 South Convent street; Ernest Young, 507 Joan Street East; OJ Bell, 3757 South Clark Avenue; Manuel Juárez, 208 East 23rd street; and FB Moeller of 1208 St. Mary’s Road.

Flores, the most seriously injured, suffered a fractured skull and possible internal injuries, doctors at Tucson Medical Center said. Young suffered a broken hip and Bell a broken right leg. The injuries of the others were minor although all the men were kept under observation.

Workers at the construction company’s supply yard at East 36th Street and Country Club Road described the dust devil as the biggest they had ever seen.

Workmen just 50 feet away were unaware the building had fallen until a blanket of blinding dust subsided and they heard the cries of injured men trapped under parts of the roof.
