Bled To Death
A Four-Year-Old Girl Falls on a Piece of Glass
Helen Cluff, aged four years, daughter of Charles Cluff, a summer resident of Atlantic Highlands, bled to death on Saturday from a cut made by a piece of glass.
The Cluffs have lived at Atlantic Highlands a number of years, Helen having been born there. This summer they are living in T. H. Mickensís house. On Saturday Mrs. Cluff and Helen started for a nearby field to pick daisies. Just as they reached the sidewalk in front of the house Helen stumbled and fell. When Mrs. Cluff picked the child up blood was streaming from a wound in the little oneís thigh. A sharp piece that was sticking up from the sidewalk had entered the childís thigh and severed an artery. The glass had made a clean cut about half an inch long. Dr. VanMater was at once summoned, but the child died a few minutes after he reached the house. Helen was an only child. The body was taken to New York for burial.
