Bachmann, Mr. (Seriously hurt in fire - 13 Dec 1912) 

Last Friday Dr. Bachmann’s father was caught in a fire in Pittsburgh and narrowly escaped with his life.  Mr. Bachmann lived at a private hotel which caught fire.  He was asleep at the time and was aroused only after the fire had gained considerable headway.  He is a man quite advanced in years, and had difficulty in getting to the fire escape, but finally succeeded, not however until he had been quite severely burned and had breathed a large quantity of smoke into his lungs.  As a result of his injuries it was not thought he would recover, but Tuesday Dr. Bachmann received a telegram saying that his father was slightly improved.  A later message stated that he has suffered a relapse and there was no hope of his recovery.  Dr. and Mrs. Bachmann leave today for Pittsburg.
