Brooklyn, NY Trolley Car Crushes Boy, Sept 1904

BOY CRUSHED UNDER CAR.

Pinioned under the forward truck of a trolley car in Wyckoff avenue, near Temple avenue, Brooklyn, last night, George Schroeder, eight years old of No. 406 Ralph street, pluckily directed the efforts of men who worked for nearly an hour to extricate him.

More than a score of men took hold of the car and lifted it from the tracks. The lad was badly cut and bruised and suffered from internal injuries. Dr. Tesiffer of the German Hospital, said his condition was precarious.
