Thriller Thursday: Found Unconscious from Gas

Evening Star (Washington, DC)
12 June 1915


D. McCarthy of Nokesville, Va., May Survive by Prompt Treatment

A middle-aged man visited Hoy's Hotel, Louisiana avenue and 6th street northwest, Thursday night, registered as D. McCarthy, Nokesville, Va. and was assigned to a room on the fourth floor.  Shortly before noon yesterday he was found unconscious from illuminating gas.  Gas was flowing from two open fixtures in the room, the police were told, and the guest's condition was critical.

Dr. A. M. MacDonald responded to a call sent to Emergency Hospital, took charge of the patient, and resorted to artificial means to restore respiration.  McCarthy's condition is much improved, it was said at the hospital, and his recovery is expected.
