Mural Artist Falls 40 Feet to His Death
Martin K. Ziegner, 58, an artist, plunged 40 feet to his death from scaffolding near a mural he was working on in the second floor main lobby of the Palmer House yesterday as 20 persons watched. Ziegner, who lived at 6846 Hobart av. and had studios at 3353 N. Halsted st., had contracted to restore the huge mural which covers the ceiling of the lobby. He climbed onto the scaffolding to inspect preliminary work.
Three other men were on the scaffold at the time. A hotel spokesman said a plank in the scaffolding gave way.
