Miss Phillips Unconscious For 76 Hours After Mishap

Miss Jane Phillips, 54 years of age, of Vulcan, died at 10 o'clock Saturday night in the Penn Hospital, Norway, from injuries received the previous Wednesday night when she fell on a stairway in the home of her sister, Mrs. Mary Myners, of Vulcan. Miss Phillips was unconscious all of the 76 hours she lived following the accident and died while in a coma.

Her injuries consisted of a fracture of the spinal process, a fracture of the skull and concussion of the brain.

Miss Phillips, who made her home with her sister, was recuperating from a severe attack of influenza. Her condition considerably improved, she ate her supper Wednesday evening with other members of the family and then left the table to go to her bedroom on the second floor of the home.

Fell On Stairs

She started up the stairs and suddenly fell. Members of the family unaware that she had been seriously injured, attempted to revive her and when their efforts proved futile called Dr. William Fielding.

Miss Phillips was born in April of 1879 in St. Ives, Cornwall, England. She emigrated to the United States in 1886 and in 1903 came to Vulcan to reside with her sister.

In addition to Mrs. Myners, she is survived by one brother, Seth, of Negaunee.

Funeral services will be held at 2 o'clock tomorrow afternoon at the Methodist Episcopal church, Vulcan, of which she was a member. The Rev. J. W. Greenwood, pastor, will officiate. Burial will be in the Norway cemetery.
