TWO WHITEWRIGHT MEN ELECTROCUTED
Live Wire Charges Clothes Line, Killing Ira
Davis and Bob Mayo
Whitewright, Texas, March 12. -- A live wire
that had fallen across a clothes
line caused the death of two men here yesterday evening
at 7:40 o'clock. Ira
Davis, a telephone line man, and Bob Mayo, a carpenter,
within a few seconds of each other. The accidents
occurred in the back yard of
Mrs. Davis, wife of one of the dead men, was
severely shocked while
attempting to free her husband from the wire tha killed
him and but for the
efforts of Postmaster Lon Davis,
she, perhaps, would have met death in the same
manner as did her husband.
No one saw Mr. Davis come in contact with the
wire, but his shouts attracted
others near by, among them Mr. Mayo, who was on his
own premises more than
fifty feet away. It was while the latter was
making a dash to render
assistance to the lineman that he met his own death,
though at a point several
steps away from Mr. Davis when he touched the wire.
Wind, it is thought, caused a hanging wire
to come in contact with that in
Mr. Davis leaves a widow and one child.
A widow and two children survive Mr.
Mayo. Up to a late hour no arrangements have
been made for the funerals,
though both bodies will probably be buried late today.
