Tred Hill Hurt by Falling Roof
Tred Hill was severely injured about the hip Thursday morning at 11 o’clock when the roof of Huddleston’s Garage collapsed.
He was rushed to Evergreen Sanitarium where his injuries received treatment, the extent of which had not been learned at our press hour.
Hill and Hugh Huddleston had gone to the rear of the garage to investigate falling brick and ran to the front as they saw the roof falling. Tred was pinned under the ceiling within twenty feet of the front. Hugh escaped.
Heroic and dangerous work by citizens was required to rescue the imprisoned boy. At the front of the building only the center roof reached the floor.
Several autos in storage were damaged, but most of the stored cars were on the west side of the room where the roof did not fall.
The building is of brick and was built 27 years ago by W. J. Moon. The roof has not been in a good state of repair.
The building adjoining, front occupied Buddy Jones, has been declared unsafe and Buddy is moving across the street.
