The child became quiet, the family went to sleep and remained so until about 2 o'clock when the mother awoke to find her baby with its back hanging to the wall, facing the side of the bed; its body having fallen through, its head catching between the wall and bed railing, its body cold and lifeless, and its spirit having taken its flight. The mother fainted and fell to the floor, inflicting a serious injury on the side of her forehead. It was some time before the husband could rouse her.
