Local Strongman Dies

For all you diehard New Yorkers, you may remember Joseph Rollino. He was dubbed Coney Island's strong man. He was hit by a can in Brooklyn ad died a short time later. He was 104.

Rollio was known as "Kid Dundee" in his boxing days. He later went on to take the title as strongman for Coney Island.

The drive was not charged considering she was not speeding and was not drunk. She did have a defective horn and was given a citation for that.

Joseph will be missed and we extend our thoughts and prayers to his family.
