BOY FLIER DIES OF CRASH INJURY.

GOLDSBOROUGH RECORD HOLDER, SUCCUMBS AS MOTHER HURRIES TO SIDE.

Bennington, Vt., July 17 -- The body of FRANK GOLDSBOROUGH, young aviator whose flight mishap is similar in many ways to that which resulted in the death of his father three years ago, was taken from here to Albany, N.Y., today in the hearse of a local undertaker. Later, the body was to be taken by train to New York.
The 19-year-old pilot did not regain consciousness after lying insensible in the wreckage of his plane for 18 hours after it crashed into Woodford Mountain Tuesday.
He grew weaker through yesterday and his stepmother, MRS. GERTRUDE GOLDSBOROUGH, of Jackson Heights, L. I., was notified. She arrived at his bedside a few minutes after he died.
Young GOLDSBOROUGH and DONALD MOCKLER ran into dense fog over the Woodford Mountain, near here.
They tried to dive under it but plunged to the ground, pinning GOLDSBOROUGH under the wreckage.
MOCKLER, crawling free, tried vainly to free the pilot. Then he set out through the wilderness of woods and swamp to get help.
Tuesday at daybreak, a mountaineer and hunter led five companions to the stricken youth. With greatest difficulty he was brought to the Putnam Memorial Hospital here where the end came.
