Scenes of almost indescribable horror attended the catastrophe
Score? of girls leaped from windows eight, nine and ten stories above
the street to their <1f3?n. In one place so many bodies fell thai the
glass and iron deadlights in the pavement were broken.
\ fir? escape in <? light shaft proved a veritable death trap. More
