“The Evening Telegram” Elyria, Ohio
Rockford,Illinois --- Alarm Clock Ring is Fatal -- Mrs. Marie Engdahl who came to Rockford from Sweden recently was awakened by an alarm clock the other morning, and when she jumped up to shut off the alarm the shock affected her heart and she fell back dead. Her eight-year-old daughter slept with her, and in falling the mother struck the sleeping girl. The latter was almost suffocated before she succeeded in arousing her brothers. Mrs. Engdahl had suffered with heart disease for years, and the awakening by a method new to her was too much for the weakened organ.
