SEVERELY CRUSHED BY THRESHING RIG
Man Caught Between Engine and Separator Suffered Terrible Injuries.
Rugby, N. D., Sept. 10.—Edward Lommen, of Flora, N. D. was brought to the hospital here with a broken leg, broken arm and several ribs broken. Lommen, who was working on a threshing rig, accidentally got caught between the bumper and the engine when they were coupling up and as a result suffered the injuries.
Local physicians deemed best not to reduce the fractures for a day or two, owing to his physical condition, due to the terrible shock and loss of blood, one of the ribs puncturing a lung. His condition is not very critical and it is believed that he will fully recover.
