EPILEPTIC ATTACK TERMINATES FATALLY

While bathing in a private pool at the Warm Springs, in company with his brother and a friend, Elliott V. Dayton, 28 years of age, of 353 West Fifth South street, was seized with an epileptic convulsion and sank to the bottom of the pool, from which he was taken dead at 9:15 o'clock last night.

Mrs. J. Dayton, a widow, the mother of the young man, and a woman friend were in a second private pool at the time of the fatality. While the three men were in the pool together the brother, Vernon J. Dayton, and the third man kept Dayton between them because of their fear that he might be attacked by epilepsy, to which he was subject. Turning away for a moment they missed him and became alarmed. After a hasty search they found the body at the bottom of the pool.

Drs. J. M. Greer and J. M. Roberts were summoned from St. Mark's hospital and worked over Dayton for two hours, but found life extinct. No water was found in the lungs, which fact led to the belief that death had been from the epileptic seizure rather than from drowning. Coroner Harry S. Harper was notified and investigated the death.
