August 6, 1910: Child of J.N. Hunt of Bunkerville foot crushed: J.N. Hunt one of the prominent ranchers of Bunkerville, made the 85-mile trip from his home to Las Vegas, arriving here Monday with a load of produce consisting of honey, chickens and fruit. He was accompanied by his infant son, Fay, five years of age. In coming down a steep hill, 15 miles Las Vegas side of Moapa valley, the brake failed to hold, allowing the wagon to get beyond control and pitching the baby off in front of the heavy load. One of the bare feet was caught by the wheel and severely crushed, the end of three toes being ground off. Owing to the remoteness of the area it was impossible to secure medical attendance until 24 hours later in a return trip to Las Vegas, the little fellow suffered greatly on the trip. After reaching Las Vegas the injury was dressed by the local Doctor. It is hoped that there is no permanent injury will result from the accident.
