Charley Boyes is bound to break his neck on that new store, before it is completed. The scaffolding gave way while he and M.A. Crocker were on it. Mr. Crocker fell to the ground but happily was uninjured, while Charley Boyes hung on to the edge of the roof until a ladder was brought to his assistance. It was a narrow escape for both gentlemen.
In another part of the same paper:
Charles Boyes, of Geneva, was at work on some scaffolding, roofing with tin his father's new store building, at Geneva, Tuesday, when the scaffolding on which he was working, broke and fell to the ground, taking with it M.A. Crocker, who was working with him. Charley cought his fingers on the edge of the roof, and held on until a ladder was brought. How was that for grip? Crocker was somewhat bruised.
