1. The Flying Bed
A Virtual Cemetery created by: alliswell
Description: WIND AEROPLANES MOTHER AND BABE IN BED 200 FEETLINCOLN, Neb. (AP)---Wire communication in parts of southeastern Nebraska was crippled Monday as a result of violent windstorms which swept over that portion of the state Sunday night. The greatest damage, reports indicate, was at Elmwood, Neb., where several farmhouses were badly damaged and telephone poles were leveled. No loss of life occurred.At Elmwood, where the storm reached the proportion of a tornado, every building on the farm of George Lenz was destroyed.Mrs. Lenz was alone in the house at the time. When she heard the approach of the storm she climbed into bed with her 5 weeks old baby. The wind picked up the bed, carried it through the air for 200 feet and then deposited it on a pile of brush.Neither Mrs. Lenz nor the baby was injured.The Idaho Daily Statesman, Boise, ID 8 Apr 1919
