Fell Thirty-Five Feet.
Fargo.—To fall 35 feet from the top of a telephone pole to the hard sidewalk and escape with only a fractured leg is the record made by George F. Selvege of this city.
Selvege is an employee of the Northwestern Telephone company and was working at some repair job on the top of a pole at Seventh avenue south. In some unaccountable manner he slipped and fell 35 feet to the ground.
An examination as to his condition after the fall revealed the fact that his right leg was fractured in two places and he was immediately given medical attention.
