Carlisle, Walter I. (Unknown - June 14, 1926)
Douglas Boy Is Killed In Fall
Douglas Budget - June 17, 1926Walter, son of Mr. and Mrs. C.S. Carlisle of Douglas, was fatally injured in an accident which befell him while working near Camden, N.J. He was employed by the Chicago Bridge & Iron Company and while at work on a tank fell from a height of twenty feet, breaking both arms. Physicians who examined him believed this to be the extent of his injuries, but later blood poisoning developed in his leg and it had to be amputated. Despite the best of care he failed to rally and his death occurred Monday. The body is being shipped to Douglas for interment.
Walter Carlisle was 23 years of age and had lived here with his parents for several years. The tragic death of their son has been a severe blow to Mr. and Mrs. Carlisle and they have the sincere sympathy of the community in their great loss.
