Another sawing accident went down on the annals of Taylor county Monday, April 1, when Alfred Lomatsch, town of Westboro, suffered a severely cut face, shoulder, side and knee while helping saw wood on the Geo. Salsbury farm, also located in the town of Westboro.
At the time, Lomatsch was throwing wood away, according to Salsbury, who was one of the party that brought the injured man to the Medford Clinic.
It was believed that the say bound on a crooked piece of wood causing the saw arbor to break loose form the frame. The arbor struck Lomatsch, knocking him down, while the saw inflicted the injuries mentioned.
