CRUSHED IN ELEVATOR SHAFT.

Martin Hansen of Kansas City, Kas.,
Probably Fatally Injured.

Martin Hansen, 14 years old, an office boy for the Meyer Jewelry Company in the Boley building, was caught between the freight elevator in that building and the wall of the shaft yesterday afternoon, and probably fatally injured.

Ray Heath, employed by the company, was running the elevator, which is controlled by a single steel cable. As Heath passed the fifth floor, Hansen tried to board the elevator, but missed. Hanging by his hands, he was dragged up along the shaft between the fifth and sixth stories. So tightly was Hansen wedged in between the elevator and the shaft wall, that a hole had to be chopped in the wall before he could be released.

He was taken to the University hospital, where it was said last night he is suffering from internal injuries. Hansen lives with his parents at 1936 North Sixth street, Kansas City, Kas.
