Waukesha, WI Falling Accident Jul 1890
KILLED BY A FALL.
Fountain House Employe Killed by Falling Down Stairs.
JOHN BROWN, an employe in the Fountain House kitchen, fell down stairs last night and broke his neck. He was 50 years old and lived in Chicago. The accident happened at 9:30 last evening, and an inquest was held this morning at which a decision was rendered to the effect that deceased came to his death by an accidental fall, which disconnected the cerebral vertabrae. He had complained of not feeling well the day before, and it is thought dizziness may have made him fall.
The remains were shipped home for interment.
