1912 - Falling Window Hangs Boy.

News
Charlottestown, P. E. I. - Harry Arbing, and 11 year old boy, was killed here by a strange accident.

He went to his school to light the fire, and, not having a key, stood a board against the side of the building and climbed to the window. The board slipped and the window came down on his neck, leaving him suspended there.

A neighbor noticed the boy hanging from the window and hastened to his rescue, but found he was dead.
