By a queer trick of fate Roy Sturm, 1545 West Sixth street, died at a local hospital this morning following an accident similar to one in which his only brother, Louis Sturm, lost his right limb about three years ago.

The dead man was struck by a crane while at work in the Bettendorf shops last Monday. His left leg was almost severed between the knee and the ankle, and he was badly bruised and torn.
