"Hunting Accident. About 8 o"clock Tuesday morning, while John Weitzel and his son were out hunting, the elder Weitzel met with an accident which resulted in a fatality. Father and son chased a rabbit into a rail pile. while pulling and hauling at the rails so that they could get a shot at the rabbit, the younger Weitzel's gun was accidentally discharged and the load struck his father in the left side. He dropped to the ground and his son was nearly prostrated by the accident. The shot struck directly below the heart and he died Tuesday evening. The victim of the accident had already lost a hand and an arm, and also the use of an eye through a blasting accident twenty-five years ago. He was sixty-seven years old. He was a veteran of the Civil War, having served three years in the Union Army."
Lititz (PA) Record Express; 09 Dec 1904.
