Farmer Gored By Bull, Dies; Son Escapes
Emil Alberding Meets Tragic Death Saturday Night; Son, Aiding Him, Narrowly Misses Death.
Emil Alberding, Carpenter township farmer residing opposite Fountain Park on State Road 53, died at the hospital here at seven-thiry o'clock Saturday night from injuries sustained when he was gored by a bull at his home two hours earlier.
The vicitim was frightfully injured, receiving six fratures on the right side of his body. Several ribs were broken and the shoulder bone and clavicle were also shattered. Ribs penetrating his lungs led to hemorrhages, which caused his death shortly after surgical attention was provided him. He was brought to Rensselaer by ambulance.
Mr. Alberding was about 45 years of age and a son-in-law of Jacob Hensler, Jasper county commissioner.
Mr. Alberding went to his barn lot about five o'clock to perform the evening chores and a few minutes later he entered the stockade where the animal is kept. He carried a small pitchfork with which to protect himself. While crossing the pen the animal disregarded the thrusts of the pitchfork and attacked him. Mr. Alberding was knocked down by the enraged beast, which gored and pawed him numerous times. The attention of the beast was diverted by the appearance of the son of its protrate victim, who had heard it bellowing. Christian Alberding, the son, rushed into the barn lot and the animal at once gave chase to him. Young Alberding was knocked over by a vicious thrust fom the beast. However, he regained his feet and started to run toward the stall where the bull is kept. The animal overtook him, but as he did so, Alberding threw up his arms and caught the beast around the neck and hung on. He was carried for several feet when he saw an opportunity to escape from the animal. He fortunately landed in a standing posture and ran into the stall with the animal in close pursuit Reaching the stall the young man leaped over the manger, beyond harm's reach. He then threw some corn into the manger and the bull began eating. Returning to his father's side young Alberding saw the latter was in critical condition and summoned an ambulance after assisting his father from the barn lot.
