JAS, DEAL HAS CLOSE
CALL FROM DEATH
Finm Wo.l'u;-. lay's Daily.
This morning James Deal, who is
employed at the local electric light and
gas plant as gas maker, had a very
close call from electrocution as the re
sult of coming into contact with one
of the high power electric wires. Mr.
Deal was engaged in working around
one of the large oil tanks and was
preparing to do some piping from one
of the tanks to connect it up with
one nearby, a::d while thus engaged
a huge section 'of pipe he was han
dling became over-balanced and fell
across one of the high tension wires,
and in an instand the whole force of
the current was sent down the length
of the pipe and the unfortunate young
man, as he was standing on the metal
tank, received the full force of the
cin ient. lie was unable to let go of
the pipe and it was not until the force
of the current caused him to fall from
the tank to the ground, several feet
below, that he was able to escape the
terrible force of the electric voltage.
Both his hands were badly burned and
his feet also, where the electricity
burned holes in the soles of his shoes
where there were metal nails. lie also
was badly bruised about the head and
shoulders from his fall to the ground,
where he lay unconscious for some
time, and as there was no one else in
the gas plant it was not until he re-gained-consciousness
that he was able
to summon assistance and have the
severe burns looked after by a physician.
