Thomas Skrabak, age 11, a student in the room of Prof. James Lithgow, Coaldale, met with a distressing accident this afternoon when a dynamite cap exploded in his hands. Three-fingers were badly mutilated. He was rushed to the Coaldale hospital. Some youths found the cap on the banks of the culm creek and brought it to the school yard this afternoon, giving it to young Skrabak. He secured a wire nail and attempted to remove the contents when it exploded.
