WILLIAM FULD SERIOUSLY HURT IN FALL OFF ROOF
Drops From Three-Story Toy Factory As Support Gives Way.

HE IS A FORMER CUSTOMS INSPECTOR
Made $1,000,000 From Invention Of “Spirit Communication” Board.

William Fuld, a former customs inspector who made more than $1,000,000 from his invention and sale of a “spirit communications” board, was seriously injured today in a fall from the roof of his three-story toy factory at 1510 Harford avenue.

He was taken to the John Hopkins Hospital, where, physicians said, they found he has concussion of the brain, five fractured left ribs, a broken arm, and a fractured leg, besides numerous cuts and bruises.

Support Gives Way.
Mr. Fuld is 54 years old and his home is at 1306 North Central avenue. He had gone to the roof of his factory with a few workmen to superintend the replacing of a worn-out flagpole.

He was standing near the edge of the roof, grasping an iron support of the pole to study himself, the workmen said, when the support suddenly pulled away and he toppled over backward. James Brady, a workman on the first floor of the factory, ran out and picked him up.
