Mount Pleasant Youth Run Over by Larry at Standard.

Special to The Courier.

MOUNT PLEASANT, May 27.—William Kopper, the 15 year old son of Ludwig Kopper, was so badly injured by being run over by a larry on the Standard ovens early this morning that he died a short time later in the Memorial Hospital. His legs were crushed and he was injured internally.

The lad had spent the night on the ovens and it is supposed that he fell across the tracks and was not seen by the engineer of the dinkey.
