Broken Neck - BROKEN NECK FATAL TO GREEK SCRAPPER Danville,...
BROKEN NECK FATAL TO GREEK SCRAPPER Danville, Va., July 3.—Antonio Niarhakos, known to hundreds of fight fans as Tony the Greek, the promising middleweight who won the 20 boxing exhibitions given here, died of a broken neck Sunday night in Luna Lake. Dr. H. J. Langston arrived at that conclusion after viewing viewing the remains. There is no doubt that in diving he hit the bottom, for a scar on the bridge of his nose showed this. A splendid athlete and powerfully developed he weighed 155 pounds. When he dived from the lower level of the midwater tower he never came up. Three minutes later the lifeguard had him out, but it was seen he was beyond aid.
