FOUND HANGING IN WOODSHED; SUICIDE FAILS.  Charles J. Nelson, Heights

Young Man, Unsuccessful in Attempt to End Life.  DISCOVERED BY MOTHER.  Screams Bring Neighbors, Who Come to Assistance; Probably Will Recover.  Charles J. Nelson, Maffett street, Muskegon Heights, aged 30 years, is in a critical condition at the Hackley hospital, following an attempt to commit suicide shortly after 1 o’clock this morning by hanging himself in the wood shed in the rear of his home.  Cut Down After Five Minutes.  Nelson was cut down, after he had hung for about five minutes by neighbors, attracted to the scene by the screams of his mother, Mrs. Peter Nelson, who happened to find him hanging to the beams of the shed.  When she first saw his body dangling from the rope’s end, she became frantic and screamed.  Neighbors rushed to the assistance of her son.  Been Despondent Over Poor Health.  Nelson had been very despondent for some time, following a nervous breakdown.  Months of treatment had failed to improve his health and recently he became very morose.  Dr. R. G. Olson was summoned immediately after Nelson had been cut down.  Nelson was bleeding profusely from the lacerations in the neck caused by the rope.  Dr. Olson thought it best to remove the man to the hospital for fear of further attempts to take his own life.  Dr. Olson stated that Nelson stood a good chance to recover although it was extremely probable that hemorrages would follow.

SUICIDE DIES AT HACKLEY HOSPITAL.  Nelson Succumbs Today Result of Hanging; Was Depondent Over Health.  Charles J. Nelson, who yesterday hung himself in a shed in the rear of his home, Maffett street, Muskegon Heights, died at 12:10 o’clock this afternoon at Hackley hospital from injuries received.  Nelson, stated Dr. R. G. Olson, who was in charge of the case, being called immediately after he was found by his mother, died from hemorrhages into the meningeal coverings of the spinal cords.  Nelson, suffering from a nervous break down and being unable to improve, despite medical treatment, recently became despondent.  He brooded over his troubles, it is said, and yesterday morning, went into the shed and tying a rope around his neck, jumped from a small box.  He had hung there a short time when his mother found him.  Neighbors were called in and the body cut down.  After treating him, Dr. Olson ordered Nelson sent to the hospital.  Nelson did not recover appreciably and this morning gradually grew worse until death occurred.  He was born in North Muskegon and attended the public schools in Fruitland township.              Besides his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Peter Nelson, Muskegon Heights, he leaves three brothers, Arthur and Fred at home, and Herman in Chicago, and three sisters, Anna, Ellen and Emma, all at home.
