Girl Escapes Serious Hurt in 18 Foot Fall
Genevieve Amey Pitched From Second Story Window in Home of Parents at McKinley
Genevieve Amey, eight years old, had a fortunate escape from serious injury or death last night when she fell 18 feet from a window in the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. L. C. Amey, at McKinley. Though she pitched backward from the window sill on which she was sitting, she landed on her feet and toppling to the ground escaped serious injury. The girl was stunned, but quickly revived. Dr. M. W. Cox, of this city, was called and found that no bones were broken or serious injuries sustained. Aside from muscular lameness and general bruises no ill effects were suffered.
The little girl was sitting on the sill of the open window in the second story of the home engaged in play with her brother. In some way, she lost her balance and fell backward to the ground. A complete somersault in the air saved her from serious injuries that would have been probable had she struck on her head or shoulders.
