Mon 6 Dec 1943 Fort William Daily Times Journal
John Arthur Nyssonen, aged four and one-half years, son of Mr. and Mrs. Axel Nyssonen, John Street Road, McIntyre Township, was drowned in the McIntyre River in front of his home at 1 p.m. Saturday. According to his mother, he had been playing about the house with his toboggan when she suddenly missed him. The toboggan was found abandoned alongside an air hole in the river in front of the house. The boy could not first be found but was later discovered in another air hole on the opposite side of the river and about 40 feet downstream. He had apparently fallen into the first hole and had been carried downstream under the ice. The water where the body was found was only two feet deep. The little boy was pulled out by his mother and a neighbor, Mrs. Purkie and after artifical respiration at the scene failed, he was rushed to Port Arthur Clinic by another neighbor, Harold Newman, accompanied by his mother and Mrs. Purkie. Here restorative measures tried by doctors also failed. Mr. Newman and John Belrose then motored to a lumber camp in Ware Township where they got the father, Axel Nyssonen and returned to the city Saturday night. It is believed the little boy started out to join older children who were clearing snow from a patch of the river ice but had paused to look at the hole in the ice and slipped in. Surviving besides the parents are two sisters,, Alice, 11 and Elizabeth, 10, and a brother Axel, aged eight. The funeral will be held tomorrow afternoon from Everest's Chapel at two o'clock to Riverside Cemetery. Toivo Pajala of the Finnish Pentecostal Church will officiate.
