1908 - Killed by a Wash Tub

Death Results From Tub Falling on the Baby.

MEAD, Neb., Sept. 3. - Tuesday morning, while Mrs. Peter Hansen, who lives east of this place, was doing some washing, her little two-year-old daughter upset a wash tub which stood on a box. The tub struck the child in the stomach with such force that death resulted from the injury.
