Eight Logansport. Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Wabash Senior Injured Critically in 75-Foot Fall Near Shades Park . CRAWFORDSVILLE (UP) — Robert M. Hurt, 21, Indianapolis, senior honor student at Wabash College, was described in critical condition today at Culver Hospital here from injuries sustained in a fall off a 75-foot cliff. Hurt was believed to have helpless on a sand bar at the foot of the cliff in Pine Hills north of Shades State Park for about 36 hours before he was found by a search party of his Phi Delta Theta fraternity brothers and college officials about midnight Wednesday. Hospital officials said he sustained a broken thigh bone, a fractured pelvis, a broken knee cap and a deep cut over his left eye. He was also suffering from shock due to exposure during heavy rainstorms, officials said. Hurt left for Pine Hills in his ear Tuesday after lunch at his fiaternity house. When he did not return Tuesday night, fraternity brothers thought he had gone to his home in Indianapolis. Later they learned he had not been home and notified college officials of his disappearance.
