LEAPS FROM UPPER WINDOW OF HOME; SAVES HIS PARENTS
Hankinson, N.D., March 11—Leaping from the upper window of his home near here, when awakened by fire which had already gained considerable headway, H.W. Stern succeeded in saving his own life and the lives of his father and mother.
When Stern leaped out, he broke a downstairs window, and found his parents still asleep. They were awakened, however, and escaped through the window, in nothing but their nightclothes.
All members of the family suffered from exposure. They saved nothing from the residence.
