Wabash, IN Construction Accident Jul 1912

Wabash, Ind., July 13. -- Charles Bash, a carpenter living here is suffering from serious injuries received by falling from the wall of a building being erected in the downtown district but despite the seriousness of his condition he expects to recover and says that the third accident in succession is no "bogy" to him. Several months ago he was caught by a falling tree and was held pinned to the ground for three hours before he was found. His right hip was crushed and he was otherwise hurt. No sooner had he recovered than he was kicked in the face by a mule and seriously hurt. Then came today's mishap, which resulted in a broken arm and other injuries.
