Caught in Belt, is Killed; Body Badly Mangled

This story was published by The Daily Ypsilanti Press on Saturday, May 3, 1913. Frank Everett, Railroad Street, 32, a laborer at the Peninsular Paper Company, was instantly killed this morning, at 6:45, at the factory, when his hand was caught between a belt he was fixing and a revolving wheel, and he was drawn in. He is survived by a wife and two children. When the machine was stopped and the body recovered, it was found to have broken nearly every bone in his body, and an arm and both legs were torn completely off. Dr. G. M. Hull was called, and the remains were taken at once to the undertaker. When the coroner had made inquiries, it was decided not to hold an inquest, the death having plainly been accidental. Mr. Everett was a balloonist on the side, and had made 18 ascensions. The funeral will be held at the home of his mother, Mrs. Russo.
