New York, NY Kicked by Horse on Ferry Boat, Jun 1869

A LADY FATALLY KICKED BY A HORSE--About two weeks ago Miss Carlisle, a lady twenty-nine years of age, was crossing from New Jersey to this city on one of the Wechawken ferryboats, when she had occasion to pass a horse attached to a carriage. From some cause, at that moment, the horse kicked Miss Carlisle in the stomach or abdomen, inflicting very serious injuries. With all possible haste the injured lady was conveyed to St. Luke's Hospital, where she lingered till yesterday morning, when death ensued. Coroner Schirmer was notified to hold an inquest on the body at the late residence of Miss Carlisle, coroner of Fourth avenue and West Twelfth street, whither permission was given for the removal of the remains. Deceased was a native of New York.
