Accident to Schoolboy at Grange On Monday afternoon at Grange , an accident happened to a boy Urquhart , son of Mr. Urquhart , Manager , Garrowood , belonging to Mr. John Geddes , Portknockie. The lad was a pupil at Grange School. It seems that the children had been tobogganing on a steep field adjacent to the school , and the sledge gathered considerable momentum on its passage down the slope , until it was intercepted by a gate post , and which dislodged the occupant . The injured boy was taken to the Schoolhouse , and kindly attended to by Mrs. Burns until the arrival of Dr. Taylor from Keith. On examination it was found that the pelvis had been severely injured , and Doctor Taylor considered it best to remove the patient to the Turner memorial Hospital , Keith , for treatment, which was done in the course of the afternoon. - Aberdeen Weekly Journal , Aberdeenshire , Scotland Friday 02 February 1917
