Boy dies from injuries

Young Negro mangled by elevator in Shipyard machine shop

Thomas Cherry, a young negro, died Friday afternoon at the General hospital from injuries received a few hours before in the shipyard machine shop. The boy caught his leg between the elevator and the ceiling of the first floor of the shop and was terribly mangled.

Doctors Corss, Buxton and Kagey performed an operation in a vain attempt to save the boy’s life.

Dr. B. R. Gary, the coroner, conducted an inquest yesterday. The jury found a verdict to the effect that the deceased came to his death from injuries as described above.
