Lovett Cox Back Home
Lineville Boy Recovering From Near Fatal Accident in Oklahoma. Lovett Cox son of Mr. and Mrs. Tom Cox who was seriously injured in Picher Oklahoma some two months ago was brought home from a Picker Hospital where he has been confined since an accident which came near being fatal. Lovett who was employed as a lineman for an Electric Company had a narrow escape from death when he was struck down by an Electric shock on the afternoon of Feb. 15th. The accident was caused by low wires and damp ground. For five days following the accident Lovett lay unconscious in a Picker Hospital and was finally restored to conciseness by Dr. Connell one of the best physicians in the country. His father was called to Picher immediately after the accident and remained with his son until he was able to travel. Lovett was afforded the best treatment by the Light and Power Company and is still under compensation from them. While his recovery is slow it is as rapid as could be expected. He is able to get along on crutches and was very glad to back with home folks.
