BULL Joseph 0

Contrary to the generally accepted ides, it seems that a man may survive after his neck is broken. The Towanda Review says that the other day Mr. Joseph Bull died at Liberty Corners, Bradford County, at the age of 81 years. He lived for almost 20 years after having his neck broken in a runaway accident, and engaged in his usual vocation as a farmer. In June, 1872, Mr. Bull, who was a very large and heavy man, was thrown from his wagon and terribly injured. The late Dr. D.S. Pratt attended him and gave it as his opinion that the bones of the neck were fractured. Mr. Bull recovered, however, but his head was thrown forward upon his breast and his neck was stiff. Physicians who examined him recently were of the opinion that his illness was caused by a pressure upon the spinal cord, the result of his old injury and that he had really lived since 1872 with a broken neck. - Wellsboro Agitator, February 8, 1899, p.3
