Baby Crushed by Motorcycle

Minot, N.D., Aug 18—Stanley Afton Barchenger, the 19-month-old son of Mr. and Mrs. G. E. Barchenger, of Minot, was crushed to death yesterday when a motorcycle, which had been standing in front of the Barchenger home and about which the child had been playing, toppled over on him. The child and his little sister, Gladys, three years old, were playing in front of the house. The motorcycle attracted their attention. According to the little girl, the baby took hold of the side of it and it fell on him. When found a few minutes later by his father, the baby was dead.
