DRAGGED TO HIS DEATH
Farmer Thrown From Mule, Foot Catches In Harness
Bird Self, 22, farmer living between Mt. Pinson and Chalkville, was killed this morning when he was thrown from a mule which he was riding, and his foot caught in a harness, dragged for half a mile.
Self was riding the mule to work in the fields at the time of the accident. Oscar Roddham, a farmer, saw the mule running down the road dragging Self's body behind it. Roddham stopped the mule but Self was already dead.
Coroner Gip M. Evans, who returned the verdict of accidental death, said he believed the mule became frightened at some object and shied, throwing Self to the ground.
