Killed At Windrock Oliver Springs- Jonah Hensley, aged 19, was killed at Windrock Tuesday morning while riding a track horse down the mountain. The brakes failed to work and the track horse ran away. His body was badly mangled. His remains were sent to Marlow where his father lives. Young Hensley had been visiting relatives at Windrock and was attempting to catch an early train. Instead of
walking down the mountain he used the track horse that caused his death. This horse is used by the miners and others when in a hurry to leave the mountain. Several accidents have occurred in using it, but this is the first fatal accident. (donated by Susie Bullock [email protected] )
