CERTIFICATE OF ACCIDENTAL DEATH FROM GAS ASPHIXIATION

While alone in her home, 523 Chestnut Street, Sarah H, widow of William J Brobst, aged 75 years, died of gas asphyxiation at 8:15 am. Coroner Norton and Deputy Coroner Shick, investigated and issued a certificate of accidental death. Deceased was breathing faintly when her plight was discovered. She passed away before arrival of the Reading Hose ambulance which was summoned. William C Brobst, son of the deceased, who resides at the Doerrheim apartments, stated that he was notified by neighbors that something unusual had happened. When he arrived at her home he proceeded upstairs to the bedroom. No sooner had he entered the house when he detected a strong odor of gas. As was her custom, Mrs. Brobst had bolted the door of her bed room door from the inside. It was with difficulty that her son forced it open. Mr. Brobst was horrified to find the form of his mother lying on the floor near the bed. She was still living. Not far from where she lay was a gas heater which was fed from a narrow hose to a jet. The hose had loosened from the jet fastening which permitted the gas to escape in a steady volume. Dr Heister Bucher was summoned. All efforts to resuscitate Mrs. Brobst was fruitless.

Deceased leaves besides her son a granddaughter in Philadelphia. Undertaker Auman took charge of the remains.
