1912 - CROWD IN PANIC WHEN CIRCUS TENT FALLS - YANKEE ROBINSON CIRCUS TENT BLOWN DOWN IN STORM AT CHEYENNE, WYO. - THIRTY SPECTATORS ARE HURT



Over 1,500 People Pinned Beneath the Tent and Panic Ensues - Physicians Say None of the Injured Will Die From Their Hurts

By United Press

Cheyenne, Wyo., July 14 - The doctors today say that none of the thirty persons injured when the tent of the Yankee Robinson show blew down last night, will die.

Over 1,500 people were in the tent last night, when a storm blew it down, pinning the spectators underneath. A high wind, accompanied by rain and lightning sprung up suddenly after the crowd gathered, and scenes of indescribably panic caused as the people were imprisoned beneath the big tent. It was during the frenzied efforts of the people to escape from the enfolding tent that many of them were injured.
