      Newspaper Obituary - Thursday Evening, September 5, 1918 Syracuse Herald - Syracuse, New York - Man Steps on Nail; Is Dead of Lockjaw ¬Wound Did Not Bother Him for Several Days - Leonard Whaley, 21, a teamster, died on Wednesday night at the Hospital of the Good Shepherd, presumably from lockjaw. The young man, employed on the Syracuse university campus, stepped on a rusty nail several days ago. The wound gave him little pain at the time and he gave it no attention. On Tuesday the foot began to swell, and he walked to the Hospital of the Good Shepherd to consult a physician. Examination showed a general infection had developed and he was placed in bed. Anti-tetanus toxin was injected. Late that afternoon, however, he showed symptoms of lockjaw. His condition became critical on Wednesday, death occurring at 8:10 o'clock in the evening. Coroner Crane had the body removed to the County morgue and an autopsy will be performed. The young man had no immediate relatives so far as could be learned.

The death of the young man occurred last Wednesday in the Hospital of the Good Shepherd, Syracuse. A short time previous, while working in that city, he stepped upon a rusty nail, which penetrated his foot, tetanus resulted and which caused his death. Undertaker G. W. Morton removed the body Sunday from the morgue in Syracuse.
