Arnold Hardy, an amateur photographer who was awarded a Pulitzer Prize for his gripping 1946 photo of a woman falling from a burning hotel, has died. He was 85. Hardy died Wednesday at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta of complications following hip surgery, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. He died just two days before the 61st anniversary of the Dec. 7, 1946, fire at Atlanta's Winecoff Hotel -- a disaster that killed 119 people, more than any other hotel fire in U.S. history.
