"CARPENTER IS FATALLY INJURED -
Walter S. [sic] Ireland, of Norfolk,
Victim Of Accident In Navy Yard -
Walter S. [sic] Ireland, aged 39 years, 825 Clay avenue, Norfolk, was fatally injured yesterday afternoon about 3 o'clock in the navy yard, when a piece of lumber fell from a crane, striking him under the arm, crushing his side and severing an artery. Death resulted in a few minutes on account of loss of blood, and internal injuries. Mr. Ireland was working in dry dock No. 4, where the two large submarines are being repaired, and a large crane was passing lumber over his head. A large piece of lumber became disengaged and Mr. Ireland threw up his right arm, evidently for protection. The plank struck him under the arm, practically severing that member from his body and cutting a large artery as well as crushing in his side. Mr. Ireland was employed as a ship carpenter. He was a member of the Loyal Order of Moose. He is survived by a widow, Mrs. Chloe Ireland; two sons, Norman G. and Ernest Lee Ireland; and two daughters, Chloe Inez and Rena E. Ireland. Funeral services will be held at 10:30 o'clcok tomorrow morning, from the home." Virginian-Pilot, Oct 5, 1920
