SERIOUSLY INJURED
By a Runaway Team Attached To Mower.
 
The farm of Ole Nystrom in Indian Lake was the scene of a very serious accident Monday morning in which Richard Engstrom received injuries that will keep him in bed for some time and narrowly escaped death.
 
Engstrom, who has been employed on the Nystrom farm was driving a team hitched to a mower. The horses became frightened and ran away. While endeavoring to stop the team Engstrom got his right leg entangled in the wheel of the mower and suffered a dislocation at the hip and a compound fracture of the bone of the lower leg, besides many cuts one of which exposed six inches of the broken bone. Despite his painful injuries he succeeded in stopping the team and extricating his leg from the wheel before assistance reached him.
 
A doctor was summoned and rendered the necessary surgical assistance after which the injured man was removed to this place and will be cared for at the home of Mrs. J.T. Milton. It is the opinion of the attending physician that he will recover without the loss of the limb.
 
The injured man has been a resident of this country but three months and has a wife in Sweden.
