History of Boone County, Iowa
Pages 452-453

August 29, 1876, William Mort and Peter Rice were killed by the damp in a coal shaft located at Ontario in the east part of the county. Early in the morning Mort went into the mine to look after some matters, and when about half way down the shaft remarked that the air was bad, but instead of retnrning proceeded to the bottom of the shaft. He soon started to return, and when near the mouth of the shaft was completely overcome and fell back to the bottom of the shaft. Peter Rice immediately descended to rescue the suffocated man, and upon reaching the bottom of the shaft immediately called to those above to raise him by means of a rope which he held in his hand. When about half way up he was compelled to loose his hold on the rope from exhaustion, aad fell back iato the mine. The two men were finally taken from the mine both dead. A coroner's jury was impaneled who rendered a verdict to the effect that Win. Mort and Peter Rice came to their death by reason of bad air in the Franklin coal mine on section 12, township 81, range 35, Boone county.

Man struck by big rig to have arm amputated

An Anderson man who was struck by a big rig Friday night in the middle of Interstate 5 was going to have his right arm amputated, the California Highway Patrol said.

Todd Mort, 27, also suffered head and chest injuries when he was hit about 6:40 p.m. in the southbound lanes of I-5 just south of Shasta Dam Boulevard in Shasta Lake, a CHP spokesman said.

Mort was a passenger in a vehicle going north on I-5 when he was either asked to get out or requested to get out because of an argument with the driver, the spokesman said. Mort called his girlfriend for a ride while he was standing on the right shoulder of northbound I-5.

His girlfriend was traveling south on I-5 as Mort crossed the freeway to meet her, the spokesman said.

Mort was waving his arms to get his girlfriend's attention with his back to traffic, the CHP said. His right arm was hit by the left-side mirror of a tractor-trailer driven by Mandel Rodriguez, 49, of Daly City, the CHP said.

Mort was taken to Mercy Medical Center in Redding where he was listed in serious condition Saturday, a nursing supervisor said.
