Dallas, TX Falls from Porch, Mar 1933

Woman Tumbles From High Porch And Gravely Hurt

A fall from the second story of her home at 1811 St. Louis street in South Dallas caused Mrs. Daisy ROREX, 40, a skull fracture and severe neck injury Saturday afternoon. At Parkland Hospital her condition was pronounced critical by attendants late Saturday night. She had not recovered consciousness since the accident.

Mrs. ROREX was sweeping an upstairs porch at the rear of her home when apparently she lost her balance and dropped fifteen feet to the ground.
