Eight year old Lesley Bailey, who resided North of Athens on the Elkmont Road, died Sunday night as he was being taken from Athens to Decatur General Hospital, and diphtheria was given as the cause of death.
The boy was brought to an Athens hospital by his father, Leeman Bailey, and given emergency treatment for the disease, though he appeared in the later stages of infection.
Since there was no isolation ward, he was advised to take the child to Decatur. He carried the boy there in his truck but he died before reaching the hospital.
