LAMBS CREEK BOY BURNED ALIVE
Lighted Paper at Stove and Clothing Caught Fire
A special dispatch from Lambs Creek to the Corning Democrat of last Wednesday says: An accident happened in this place which resulted in the death of the three year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Lamont Wood. Mrs Wood had stepped out of the house to get some firewood, leaving her two little children, the boy being the eldest in the house. She had been out of the house but a few minutes when she heard the boy scream, and she at once ran in and found his clothing on fire
A bucket of water was dashed over him, but the flames had done their fatal work. He was burned so badly that he died within 24 hours.
Dr. Edith Flower, of Mansfield was hastily summoned and did all in her power to alleviate the little fellow’s sufferings. The flesh of one arm was literally roasted and the upper part of his body and head horribly burned. In attempt to tear the burning clothing from the child his mother was badly burned about her hands. It is not known just how the accident occurred, but it is thought the child had lighted a piece of paper that he was playing with near the stove while his mother was out of doors and his clothing caught from that.
