Duluth, MN Tripped While Running, May 1908


Curtis Johnson is lying in a serious condition at his home, 1504 Belknap street, as the result of a fall Sunday evening. He is suffering from concussion of the brain and it is feared that a hemmorhage may set in. Young Johnson sustained his injuries while on the way to church Sunday evening. While in the vicinity of the Blaine school he started to run and tripped striking his right temple on a pile of ashes. He was knocked unconscious by the fall and lay on the ground for some time before he was found by Francis Rooney.
