Amebury, MA Slipped on Ice; Injured by Logs, Feb 1930
MEETS WITH PECULIAR ACCIDENT
Chief Electrician Alfred R. Ubanks, USN, for the past six months inspector of government at the Henchel Manufacturing Company, Amesbury, Mass., recently met with a peculiar accident and on the occasion of the celebration of his 42nd birthday. Returning from his woodshed with an arm full of wood logs for an open fire place he slipped on the ice covered pavement and fell to the ground. The sharp edge of one of the logs amputated the right middle finger at the base. He was removed to a civilian hospital for first aid and was found to be suffering much from shock and loss of blood. Later he was taken to the Naval Hospital at Chelsea.
