Chamberlain, April 4.
Compelled to lie pinned to the ground from midnight until nearly 7 o'clock the following morning, was the experience of George MCKENNA, a Charles Mix county farmer.
While driving home with a heavily loaded wagon his horses ran away and tipped over the wagon. Among the articles on the wagon was a disc plow. This was thrown out with the other contents of the wagon, and a piece of it struck MCKENNA on the head with such force that he was rendered unconscious.
When he regained consciousness he discovered that one arm was pinned under the wagon in such a manner that he could not release it. Not until nearly 7 o'clock in the morning was he found by a passer. MCKENNA was badly injured, among other injuries being the loosening of three ribs from the backbone.
