John C. Hooker, a bookkeeper, in trying to operate an
elevator at 41 1 Sansome street last evening, attempted
to jump out when he saw disaster impending. His legs
were caught by the floor of the elevator and crushed
against the doorcasing. There he hung suspended,
suffering awful torture, for an hour before help came.
John C. Hooker, head bookkeeper for
the Cox Seed Company, at 411 Sansome
street, Ij-ied to # operate the elevator in
the deserted building last evening, and
in a remarkable accident the experi
ment cost him his right leg and the
serious Injury of the other. He entered
: the cage on the top floor, and • had
turned the;lever before he pushed the
gate shut. # Instead of going down the
, elevator went up, and. fearing disaster
at the pullers,. Hooker attempted \u25a0to
Jump put. the <3oor not having been
The" lift ascended too rapidly, how
• «v«r, and the" \u25a0unfortunate"" man's legs
\u25a0were caught between the floor. of the
elevator and the top of the gate casing.
In- that terrible position he was sus
pended, -with his head dangling almost
in the shaft" and the" power' of the ele
vator crushing . harder and harder. 'on
his legs, and not till an hour later,
efter he had cried himself, to exhaus
tion, did help come to extricate him.' ,
Hooker's cries were heard from the
street t>y a number of people, but his
' exact position could not be located. The
commercial section of the city was de
eerted In the Sabbath evening, - and"
every door In the neighborhood of his
• houts for help was locked against the
crowd that was only too anxious to
render assistance.
A policeman passing with two bedrag
gled prisoners finally traced the sounds
to the Cox building. He turned his va-
Crant charges over to another "patrolman
end commenced his work of rescue.
What Hooker must have suffered be
fore he was released from his agonizing
position, both of his tegs being badly
•rushed, the blood rushing to his head,
stifling his voice, on which he alone re
lied to summon aid, and in the hour he
endured in absolute helplessness, believ
ing for the most time that the conse- ,
quences could only be lonely death,- can;
only be realized by his feeole responses :
made at the Harbor Emergency Hospi
tal when Dr. Tlllman was binding and
setting his bruised and crippled limbs.
A heavy door resisted Policeman
Charles Brown's efforts to enter the
building. This obstacle was quickly over
come by a sailor, named Walter- Barren,
who in the presence of a great crowd
of people climbed up a stand pipe used
for fire purposes and broke into a win
dow on the fourth floor of the ; building,
where the man was imprisoned. Police
man Brown, reinforced before this time
by Policemen John Evatt and "Edward
Mills, could hear' the." voice, now very
feeble, appealing for help to come to
the fourth floor. Thither the sailor went
and found the bleeding man, almost a
corpse, his head dangling in the air and
the great atrain of the electric elevator
pressing on Ihe injured, limbs.. ,
Barren was not slow to act- He secured
a chair and reached Into Hooker's pocket
for his keys. Then he rushed downstairs
and opened the door, for the/ policemen."
When the rescuers mounted the stairs |
they found Hooker almost insensible. The j
elevator door was open and ~ his body, j
with the exception of his legs, hung out
into the corridor of the ; building. '/ He
could not assist himself in any manner
and the carriage, pressed close to the; top

and, after the current had been chut oft.
It was not a difficult- matter for -the po
licemen*. and those \u25a0 who • assisted ' thenv?to
chop away the ; roof, and 'Hooker, by; this
time unconscious from' pain,- was lowered
to the floor and carried to the street.' An
ambulance had previously been called and
the injured man was hurried to the Har
bor Emergency Hospital.
When an Examination was 'made it was
found that Hopker's right leg was badly
crpshed just below the hip, and it is not
likely that It will have to be amputated.
His left leg is fractured and he suffers
excruciating" pain.
Wheri Hooker recovered consciousness,
he . made the , following statement: "I
went into the building last evening for
the purpose of securing, my mail. I en
tered the front door, and, as the ejevator
was not running, I walked to the. fourth
floor, where my office is located. When
I had read my letters I left the . office,
and the elevator being at this floor, I
thought of riding down in it. There was
no one else In the building -at the time,
and I had locked the front door. •
"Before I had closed the front gate -of
, the. machine I 'grasped a rope and the*
cage shot upward. Then I realized that
I had pulled the wrong rope, and being on
the top floor, knew that I was in danger
.of meeting with- a serious accident. .The
machine was about one-half. the distance
between the floor and the top of. the*ele
vator inclosure when I thought of jump
ing. * My idea .-was 'to leap to thefloor,
.but the machine was moving too quickly
for me, and before I could clear the dis
tance the base of the machine caught my
\u25a0legs, pinioning me against the! celling
with my body dangling- downward.
• "What- I endured during * the hour I
remained in . this position can better be
Imagined than described by myself. 'I
•shouted,, but no response - came. Then I
took my < watch out ot my pocket and
tried to' throw It out of* the window, that
I might- attract attention from the street.
I could not use enough force, and the
timepiece fell on the floor In front of me.
The blood was rushing to my head, and
the pain, caused a fainting sensation to
overcome me. ... .
They say I was only in there an hour,
but it seemed an v eternity to me. .All I
remember Is that I finally- abandoned
hope, and at times my voice had no power
to call. I remember shouting, for what
I believed to be - the last time, • when I
indistinctly heard a voice ask where I
was. Feebly I replied. "The fourth floor.'
A little later a\ man came crashing
through tne. window, took away my, keys
and soon the great strain that was upon
my legs was released, and I was hurried
to an ambulance. .Then I remember noth
ing until I awoke on the operating table.'/
