A Trio of 1905 Accidents

In May 1905, the Baltimore Sun reported on three women living in Western Maryland who experienced a variety of unique accidents that caused them injury: 

“Mrs. Bullock, wife of Rev. J.O. Bullock, while in a store at Lonconing making purchases stepped backward into a cellar way, the trapdoor having been left open. Several of her ribs were fractured. About the same time Mrs. William Fulton fell from a chair which broke under her weight, and the splinters of the chair severely wounded her. Her condition is serious. Mrs. William T. Barnes, of Lonaconing, fell from a board upon which she was standing while papering a room and fractured her breastbone.”
