Way We Were: Chief Kirby rescues child from room

-A A +A

May 24, 1962


Chief of Police William Kirby was called to the home of Mrs. E.B. Cornett Jr. on Bond Street to assist in getting the 2-and-a-1/2-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Donald Drury from the second story of the home where he had locked himself in.
The chief said the child had turned an inside lock to a room adjoining the bathroom and was unable to get out.
While the officer was attempting to get through the window to the child, he tried to get him to open the door, but the boy only cried a little harder, Kirby said. When he finally got into the room, the child ran and jumped in the chief’s arms.
