MEXICAN DIES FROM SHOCK OF ACCIDENT
Caught Leg in Coal Conveyor at Potash Plant at Lakeside - Dies in St. Joseph's Hospital
Ramon Aguilar, a Mexican aged about 30 years, died Wednesday morning at 2 o'clock at St. Joseph's hospital from the shock of an accident in which his left leg was seriously injured at the potash plant of the Hord Alkali Products Company at Lakeside at 7:30 o'clock Tuesday evening.
Aguilar was engaged in shoveling coal onto a moving conveyor at the plant. In some manner his leg became caught in the conveyor, which was at once stopped, but not before the leg was crushed and broken. He was placed on a freight train which was at Lakeside and brought to Alliance at once.
Funeral services were held from Holy Rosary church this morning, interment being made in the Catholic cemetery. Relatives are living in Mexico.
