Was Too Thin
HALF HOUR IN ICY WATER I
Other Accidents Acciden ts Occur in Attempts to
Pull PuUBoy Boy Out of f the Eastern East rn
Branch
Attempting Utempt1n to o skate across the thin
lee in the channel c annel of the Eastern
Branch John Clark fourteen years old
and living at 121S Eleventh street south ¬
east brolethrOug broke through h the Ice
Attempts to rescue him resulted in Ir
the plunging of four other otherbo boys s in the th
icy waters
For almost half an an hour Clark kept
his head a above bove the surface by holding ho1din
on to a acnke cake of ice which while hlle sup ¬
porting him himwas was not n pt strong enough io t
bear his we weight ight 0
Clark was wasfina1ly finally pulled out and taken
to the Providence Hospital
How it Happened
About 5 50 oclock clockyesterdaY yesterday afternoon afterno on
Clark started d across across the Eastern Branch
on his skates to Join some so ne companions
on the other side In spite of the warn ¬
ings of other skaters Clark kept on
making for the wharf of the gas works
near the th foot of Twelfth street south ¬
east
Near the shore at a t this point there is
a a strip of thin ice Clark was skating skatlr
fast when he struck this and was al ¬
most half way across a Cros when the ice be b ¬
gan to crack
Several friends had skated out to meet
him They hey shouted to him to go back ack
but the th boy refused to listen Taking Taklnga Taking a
short shorts stroke s troke he he a attempted ttempted to cross the th
remaining strip strl > with a dash but had ha
hardly started when the ice i e broke br qke
Clings to an Ice Floe
Clark plunged into intot the e freezing freezing water
and was lost to sight only to reappear
holding tightly to a piece of ice which w ich
was only strong enough to keep his
head out of the water Time and again
he attempted to crawl to safety on one
of the big ig cakes floating fioatingwithineas1 within easy
reach Each time they gave way be ¬
neath nea h his weight
The boy was soon surrounded by a o
crowd of skaters Among the first firstto t to
go to the boys aid was Harry Shep ¬
herd seventeen years Jearsoldand old and living at
1011 K KStreet Street southeast He started out
boldly boldl but buthimse himse lf bro ke through when
more than a dozen feet away from
Clark Luckily the solid ice was was wasonly only a a
few feet behind him and reaching it he
drew himself to safety
Albert i Luckett fourteen years ears old of 01
1207 G G street soitheast sOIth a8t and William
Flaherty fifteen years old of 1211 I 1
street streetsoutheast southeast tried to creep cautious ¬
ly over ovclthe the thin sheet of ice They hey had
almost almostreache reached the boy when whenth their ir com ¬
bined weight proved too great a t strain
on the ice j < e It bro broke ke and both were were
plunged into the water almost directly
save in front i nt of the boy they were wer tr tnt trying ying g to t
Brought F911g1 ugt a J1 aRope T Hope pe > t L u
Attracted Attrn ted by the cries cri S s for aIdT aida aidflarry Harry rr
Bailey BaIl k the tb keeper or a nearby n ear y boat b at
house walked out tJn on the ice ic e saw the
boys plight and hurried off in insearch search
of a piece of rope He returned with it
on the run and found several sev ralmeIi men eiri en
poyed in the gas house homleattell1pting attempting a
rescue by means of a plank which they
had secured
At Uevery every attempt to crawl out to the
halfdrowned boys the ice bent in ina a
threatening t reatening manner At length Luckett
and Flaherty were rescue rescued d and taken to
the gas house There they tl ey were werestripped stripped
rubbed and reelotheoL
Clark was still in the th frozen water
and was rapidly becoming exhausted
when John JohnPerslngsventeen Persing seventeen years old
and living at 1117N 117 N Street southeast
saw the crowd croWd and investigated He tied
a skate to the end of the rope furnished
by b r Bailey and nd made p1adeseveral several casts At
length he succeeded in landing it direct ¬
ly in front f nt of Clark
The latter however had both his hands
enjployed in keeping his head above the
water and could only take the skate be ¬
tween his teeth
This helped but little The boy was
to too p exhausted to aid in his own rescue
His lips almost immediately froze to the
skate which had been thrown him l rn
Goes After Clark
Persing then fastened the end e1dof of the
rope around his waist and started
toward the theboy boy Farther and farther
he walked until it seemed to the watch ¬
ing crowd that the thej ice e would not break
with him
Just as he reached the opening
caused by the previous falls however
lie dropped with a splash He came
up in a a moment and grabbing Clark by
the shoulders assisted him to a plank
which some one had shoved out in readi ¬
ness On the plank Clark Clarkwas vas seized
by l > ya a dozen waiting hands and was
pulled out just as the ambulance of the
Providence Hospital arrived
Cheer after cheer was sent up as Per ¬
sing Eingat at great ris risk k to his own life de ¬
liberately walked out on the thin ice
on his way to the rescue Clark safe
however he immediately departed d < parted for
his home where dry clothing was put
en and the incident apparently forgot ¬
ten
In his rescue Persing was assisted by b
James Harbin nineteen years old and
living at 1328 Eleventh street southeast
Harbin ventured far out on the ice and
caught Clark as he h was lifted out of
the water by PersJng The ice strained
by b the double weight bent dangerously
and cracked in such a threatening mar ¬
ner that many spectators feared the
work of the two rescuers rescuers would go for
naught and that all three would be
plunged in the frozen stream
Boy Will Live
His hands an d feet frozen and uncon ¬
scious from exposure Clark was finally
brought to dry land Some one in the
crowd produced a flask and whisky was
poured down the unconscious boys
throat in an effort to revive him He
rallied but butsUghtly slightly and was hurried
to the hospital where for a time it was
feared he would die from the effects
of his long and terrible exposure
He yielded Ielded to treatment however and
was this morning reported greatly gren tly im ¬
proved The attending physician says sa s
Clark passed a quiet night and will
unless pneumonia should s hould develop develoPI I be
able to return to his home within a
reasonable time
