In addition to this, Joseph McElroy, three years old, son of Mrs. Evelyn McElroy, is known to have been drowned, as is H. N. Burch of 820 south Eighth street, Camden.
A pathetic case was the identification of Dr. Paul F. Felsberg of Philadelphia by his brother. From midnight until dawn the brother with friends pleaded with the police for admittance to the morgue, already satisfied from descriptions furnished by the officials that the physician and his wife, Frances, were among the dead. When the party were admitted they were prepared for the physician and his wife were in the morgue. One among the rows of bodies lying covered with sheets was the corpse of Eddie Niess, five years old, of Philadelphia. His father, Ernest, who escaped with his life, but lies injured at the house of his brother in this city. He could not go to the morgue, but his sister-in-law identified the body.
