Eastbrook, PA Buggy Overturns Crossing Creek, May 1916

Has Narrow Escape When Buggy Upsets

John McCreery of East Brook is Thrown Into Nehannock Creek by Accident

WATER CONCEALS THE CROSSING

(Special to The News.)

EASTBROOK, Pa., May 1.---John McCreery had a very narrow escape from both serious injury and drowning when the buggy in which he was riding was overturned in the Neshannock creek which he was attempting to cross. The water was high and the regular crossing place was not visible owing to the sordid condition of the water.

When the buggy was overturned Mr. McCreery was thrown into the stream. He was not injured by the fall but was in the cold water for nearly half an hour before the buggy was righted. He caught a severe cold in which it was feared would develop into pneumonia. He is at present however recovering rapidly.
