Easton, PA Storm, Jan 1889
Thrilling Experiences on a Suspension Bridge.
EASTON, Pa., Jan. 10. -- The wind blew great gales here last night, but no serious damage was done. Over the Lehigh river at this place is the largest foot suspension bridge in this country. It was severely tried by the gale, and those on it had thrilling experiences, only saving themselves by twisting legs and arms around the guard-rails. OSCAR WOLFRAM was blown off the bridge, but landed in deep water and escaped injury.
