Bristol, IN Bridge Collapse During Boat Race, July 1895

A LONG LIST OF INJURED.

AT LEAST SEVENTY PERSONS HURT IN THE COLLAPSE OF THE BRIDGE AT BRISTOL, IND. -- NONE DEAD YET.

Bristol, Ind., July 5. -- At least seventy persons were injured by the collapse yesterday of the bridge over the St. Joseph River, from which fully 600 persons were watching a boat race. A full list of the injured may not be given at present, because, as was stated in yesterday's dispatches, many of those who were hurt were taken into the country by their friends just as soon as they were rescued from the river. It is believed, however, that the following list contains the names of those most seriously injured:
