Curtis Johnson is lying in a serious condition at his home, 1504 Belknap street, as the result of a fall 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.
