Is Severely Injured By Fall Down Stairway

Mrs. Elizabeth Pugh Injured in Accident at Home of Daughter, Mrs. Frank Hutchinson
____________________________
Mrs. Elizabeth Pugh was severely injured this morning by a fall down the stairway at the home of her daughter, Mrs Frank Hutchinson on North Lebanon street. Mrs Pugh suffered a fracture of the left arm below the elbow and was also injured about the left hip. Dr. Herma A Beck attended her.
Mrs. Pugh is 75 years of age and her injuries because of her age may prove serious.

Editor's Note: This article appeared in the Lebanon Daily Reporter on Tuesday, February 10, 1920. Mrs Pugh had come to visit Jennie her daughter, and Frank her son-in-law, the original builders of our house. She died shortly after this incident. This is another reason why I tell the kids not to run on the stairs.
