Tuesday, June 20, 1950 Rochester Sentinel
Franz Heinzmann
Franz HEINZMANN, 37, Route 3, Rochester, a circus performer, plunged to his death at Pueblo, Col., Monday afternoon while circus fans watched his act at the Colorado State Fairgrounds.
Heinzmann, billed as the "Great Francisco" with the Pollack Bros. Circus, was performing atop his 100 foot pole when it snapped 20 feet below the top, hurling him to the ground. Death was instantaneous.
His wife, the former Pauline KINDIG, and their three children, were on the circus lot at the time of the accident but did not witness the tragedy.
Show officials stopped the performance following the tragedy but the circus continued following an intermission. Miss Bessie Pollack, owner of the show said:
"There must have been a defect in the pole. It's the only way we can account for it."
The circus performer, who had 18 years experience, was born in Munich, Germany, and came to the United States in 1930 with the Gretona family, also of Rochester. He first appeared with Ringling Circus and then in 1937 joined Cole Brothers Circus. He had lived here since 1937 and was a member of the Prsbyterian Church and the Masonic lodge.
He started on his current tour more than a month ago.
News of the accident was received in Rochester late Monday afternoon by Floyd KINDIG, Heinzmann's brother-in-law. Kindig left immediately for Colorado.
The body will be returned to the Zimmerman Brothers funeral home here. Final rites are incomplete.
Survivors include the wife and their three children, Bali Lee and Bondi Lynn, twins, and Fritz Patrick ‎[HEINZMANN]‎.
