Maggie WILSON paralyzed at a party (1908)

from The Republican (Danville, Indiana) - issue of Thursday, March 19, 1908 - page 1, column 3:

Miss Maggie Wilson, a young lady living north of Rainstown, is suffering from a peculiarly unfortunate accident. She was at a party a few evenings ago and with other ladies was seated on the floor. Behind her was a lady in a chair. Someone playfully tilted the chair and the lady on it fell upon Miss Wilson's shoulders and the back of her neck. Her head was forced down upon her beast and the spinal cord ruptured. As a result she is totally blind and a part of each day is unconscious. Her recovery is doubtful.
