San Antonio, TX Toddler Fell into Out House, Aug 1882

Texas

Says the San Antonio Express on Sunday: Bristow, a bright little two years old boy of Mr. Frank Geiger, yesterday morning fell into an out closet at the residence on Fourth street, near Major Kampmann's, and when taken out by the neighbors was quite dead, having been in too long for resuscitation. The mother had missed the little fellow from her side but a few moments, but when she sought for him in the yard he could not be found. She at once suspected danger and sought in the closet, where her darling was found, having fallen through a distance of 15 feet from the surface.

Everything possible was done to bring back to life, but to no avail. The child was also bruised badly about the head and neck, evidently striking against the rocks on its head.
