Almost Killed In India

Post by Karen on Tue 24 Aug 2010 - 7:25

PRINCE ALBERT VICTOR.

The Son of The Prince of Wales, Has a Narrow Escape.

MYSORE, India., Nov. 29. - An event that threatened death to Albert Victor occurred here this morning. Since the arrival of the young prince and his suite the greatest gaiety has prevailed in garrison and official circles here. A number of fetes of oriental splendor have been projected, reviews have been held, and the young prince, who rides well, has been much admired. This morning he rode over to the Palace of the titular Rajah to see the herding of elephants. The prince had dismounted and advanced with a number of officers to get a closer view of the mighty animals as they were driven into the enclosure. One of the number of great beasts became unruly, escaped from the driver and charged directly upon the prince, who was standing apart from the rest. The prince was nearest to the elephant and did not at first see his imminent danger. A shout from behind warned him. It seemed too late, for the elephant was scarcely four yards away. At this juncture Colonel Sanderson sprang forward waving his arms, and darted between the prince and the elephant. This brave act disconcerted the beast for the moment, and he swerved in the direction of the colonel. The prince, now thoroughly frightened, turned and ran to the grand stand, where he finally found refuge. Colonel Sanderson escaped by a miracle.

EXCITEMENT IN LONDON.

LONDON, Nov. 29. - When the news was made known in London the greatest excitement prevailed over the narrow escape of the heir presumptive. Some people pretended to look on it as more than an accidental incident, recalling the mysterious rumor which was circulated shortly after the young prince started for India, namely, that he would never return alive. This grew out of a report, unfounded it is firmly believed, that the young man was implicated in the nameless horrors of the Cavendish street house, near Cavendish Square. Two of his household were involved in it and they have been dismissed.
