It went right over his body crushing his left arm and fracturing it in two places, and inflicting other painful injuries to his face head and body. He was brought into Tumut Hospital by Mr W. Stanfield in a sulkey and was attended by Drs. Mason and Browne, who performed the necessary surgery. The patient had a fair night's rest on Friday night, and his condition was much improved on Saturday. - (Ref- The Tumut Advocate and Farmers & Settlers' Adviser (NSW : 1903 - 1925)(about) Previous issue Tuesday 12 March 1912 Page 3).
