Duluth, MN Ironworker Falls, Mar 1910


While working for the Duluth Metal company on a job at one of the Northwestern coal company's docks yesterday afternoon, John Nelson was struck by some falling iron work and had a part of his chin cut off, and his left arm badly gashed. He was rushed to a local hospital where medical treatment was at once given him. Though the cuts are rather severe and will leave their marks during the rest of his life it is not thought that they will prove fatal.
