Boy Escapes With Bump In Fall From Dad's Car
SUPERIOR, WIS. -- So well bundled up to withstand the winter weather was 5-year-old David Nye that he suffered only a bump on the head and few bruises recently when he fell from his father's car while it was traveling 60 miles an hour. He was wearing two snowsuits. David was in the back seat with his brother, Dick, 11, when a door swung open and the younger boy fell out. The father is the Rev. Harold Nye, pastor of Central Methodist church.
