Dallas, TX Lightning Strike, Jun 1923


Four Others Hurt in Dallas Flash

DALLAS, Texas, June 2.---A bolt of lightning striking the "play store" of neighborhood children shocked out the lives of two small boys here late today.

As the children, just out of school for vacation, busied themselves selling lemonade to the passersby, the shock came, killing 8 year old Harry Wrather and his chum of the same age, David Bettison, Jr.

Four others were injured by the flash, three of the small boys and the other a negro nurse who ran out to get one of the boys when the storm threatened.
