FOOT TORN OFF AT THE ANKLE
THOMAS HALVORSON SUFFERS PAINFUL INJURY IN A RUN-AWAY—BROUGHT HERE
Thomas Halvorson who lives fourteen miles north of Springbrook was the victim of a bad accident last Thursday when his left foot was torn off at the ankle, following which the lower one third of his leg had to be amputated. Halvorson made an attempt to jump from a wagon after the team had become frightened and started to run away. His foot was caught and twisted off at the ankle. He was brought to the city hospital, where the amputation was performed by Dr. Distad.
