WOTRING, W. W.

SON WAS SAVED ~ FATHER DROWNED
W. W. Wotring Lost His Life Trying To Save His Boy
Father Couldn't Swim
This afternoon while two of Mr. Wotring's little sons were bathing one of them got beyond his depth, Father Drowned. There was an extremely sad drowning accident at two o'clock this afternoon in the Potomac River at Sandy Bottom, opposite Evitt's Creek aqueduct, a father having drowned trying to save his little son. It appears that Earl and Carl, two little sons of W. W. Wotring, who conducted a little store on Race Street in South Cumberland, were in the river bathing, while the father of the boys was seated on the bank of the river watching them. It happened that Carl got into water over his head. Mr. Wotring, who could not swim, but fearing his little son would drown, started to wade to where his son was struggling in the water, when all at once the father slipped into water over his head. In the mean time H. S. Wotring, a B & O yard brakeman, at Keyser, who happened to be near, and witnessing what was taking place, went to the rescue of the drowning father and son and while he succeeded in saving the boy, the father drowned before his brother could return from placing the boy on the bank. At a late hour this afternoon the body of the drowned man had not been recovered. He leaves a family of five children and a wife and was 38 years of age. The accident caused considerable excitement as the drowned man was highly respected.

Body Recovered Later- The body has been recovered. It was taken in charge by Undertaker Stein and will be removed to the morgue. The wife is said to be nearly prostrated from the shock.

Farewell, dear father, sweet they rest,
Weary with years and worn with pain,

And tender memories of thee keep;
Thine in the Lord to rest, so far
He giveth his beloved Sleep.
