Danger, 1920.


At Wailuku, Maui, the Life of the Dairy Manager of the Wailuku Sugar Plantation was Spared
Help Came Just in Time So that He Would Not Become a Victim of the Bull

At Wailuku, Maui, on Tuesday of last week, according to news sent to the Advertiser newspaper, Mr. P. W. Eichenger met with an accident, being gored by a bull; and yet he was lucky that he was alive, because help came just in time.

Mr. Eichenger is the manager of the dairy of Wailuku sugar plantation; last Tuesday, he and some workers went to drive bull, and that is when the bull chased after the two of them, but his partner ran in time, whereas the manager was caught by the bull and gored by its horns and stomped upon by its feet.

This goring by the bull of Eichenger continued for half an hour as his partner tried to drive off the bull by throwing rocks and branches, but the bull did not budge in the least.

When help arrived from a ranch a way off, the injured one was finally rescued from the continued goring by the bull.

According to the news, many of Mr. Eichenger’s ribs were broken, and his body had many wounds, and many areas of his body was injured.
