      Had Leg Amputated March 3 After Being Caught In Chain- Survived By Five Children.

      William Lyng, Aged 53 years, of Huntingtonville, died suddenly at 11:10 this morning at the Sisters' Hospital where he had been a patient since March 3. Death was due directly to cerebral hemorrhage resulting from hardening of the arteries coupled with the shock of an accident which resulted in the amputation of his left leg on March 3.
      Mr. Lyng's death came as a shock to the hospital authorities and the attending physician as well as his family. Only a few minutes previous to his death he was joking and laughing with other patients convalescing at the hospital and was apparently in good condition. He suddenly grew weak, however, he told the nurse, his physician was called but all efforts to save the man's life were unavailing.

      While employed at the Ice Company of Watertown at the Huntingtonville Plant Mr. Lyng was working around a conveyor when he caught his leg in the chain. The bones in his leg were smashed, and his leg was so badly mangled that the leg hung only by the cords. He was rushed to the hospital in a motor car and the leg was taken off just below the knee.
      He seemed to improve steadily after the operation and his complete recovery had been expected. He had, however been suffering from hardening of the arteries for sometime and this was a factor in his sudden death.

      Mr. Lyng was born in the Town of Pinckney, Lewis County, on Feb. 11 1851, the son of the late James and Mary Ryan Lyng. About 30 years ago he was married to Miss Annetta Florida, a resident of Harrisburg, Lewis County. There he followed the occupation of a farmer.
      He came to Huntingtonville ten years ago and since had worked as a carpenter. He was the father of five children.
      One son, Floyd Lyng, died in Camp McClellan in 1919, while in the service. Besides his widow, he is survived by three sons Daniel, George, and Gordon Lyng; all of Huntingtonville; one daughter, Miss Anna Lyng of Huntingtonville; Three brothers: John Lyng of Los Angeles, Calif.; Frank Lyng, Montana; and Thomas Lyng of this city, and one sister, Mrs. John L. Burns, also of this city
      Funeral arrangements were incomplete.
