Beach, ND (near) Rattlesnake Kills Two Boys, June 1913

BOYS FOUND DEAD IN BED WITH RATTLESNAKE BETWEEN.

Beach, N.D., June 22 - When Mrs. Dave Grant, living fourteen miles southwest of Beach, went to call her two sons, ages 6 and 7 years old, this morning she found them dead in bed, with a rattlesnake lying between them.
It is believed that the reptile crawled into the bed clothes during the day while they were being aired out of doors.
During the previous evening, just after the youths had retired, each had complained that the other was pinching him.
