CHILDREN RUN DOWN IN BLINDING BLIZZARD. ROBERT WORTMAN KILLED - SISTER NOT EXPECTED TO LIVE.
Caught in the deep Lightfield hill cut between Spring Prairie and Burlington during
the ten minute blizzard Thursday morning, Robert Wortman, age 12, was run down by a car and killed, and his sister Miola, age 8, is lying in Memorial hospital with injuries from which she may not recover. They are the children of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Wortman.
The second tragedy of the week occurred while the children were on their way to the
Lightfield District school about 8:30 o'clock. Charles Wiswell of Elkhorn was driving
the car which struck the children. The blinding snow storm which came without warning
is thought to have confused both driver and children.
Mr. Wiswell was driving with his lights on, it is reported, and the children walking
with faces averted to protect themselves from the driving snow failed to see the approaching car until it was too late. The snow obscured the driver's view of the road ahead. The children were brought to Memorial hospital. Robert lingered about 15 minutes. The little girl suffered compound fractures of both legs and internal injuries. Her condition is considered serious, (first tragedy was child crushed to death between a car and building)

Funeral services for Robert Wortman, who was killed by being run down by an auto driven by Charles Wiswell of Elkorn, in a blinding snow storm last Thursday morning, were held from the Wortman home Saturday afternoon, Rev. Kionka of Lyons officiating and the remains laid to rest in the Burlington cemetery. The esteem in which the youth was held and the sympathy extended the bereaved parents was evident by the large circle of neighbors and friends who attended the services.
His younger sister, Miola Wortman, is recuperating nicely as can be expected at
Memorial hospital. She had both legs badly broken and they must remain in casts for some time. The injuries were undoubtably received by the car passing over her limbs.
Upon being appraised of the accident last Thursday morning Coroner W.F. Kisow came to Burlington and empaneled a jury composed of Theodore Lightfield, U.S. Fay, Al. Reuschlein, Frank Bellen, Jr., Gilbert Kasher, and M.M. Morrissey.
They viewed the remains, drove to the scene of the accident where Mr. Wiswell
explained how it happened and went to the hospital to hear the story of Miola Wortman.
The jury then adjourned until after the holidays when it will meet at the convenience
of Coroner Kisow and Walworth county authorities. Mr. Wiswell has not been held, authorities holding the opinion it was an unavoidable accident. Mr. Wiswell stopped at once to tend whatever aid he could, brought the injured girl to the Burlington hospital and since has done everything possible to assist the bereaved parents.
Robert Wortman is survived by his parents and nine brothers and sisters, Fordyce,
Irene, Miola, Janet and Goldie are the sisters; and the brothers are Alvin, Richard,
Junior and Lester.
