2 January 1983 -  “13 HURT AS FRIGHTENED HORSE HITS RUNNERS IN PARK”


“Thirteen runners were injured and dozens of others knocked down when a carriage horse frightened by New Year’s Eve fireworks galloped headlong into the tightly packed...” crowd.  While some runners tried to dodge the flying hooves and the carriage wheels, “others tripped over those who had been knocked down.  “It was a nightmare,” “People were screaming,”  said a young woman from her hospital bed after being trampled and run over by a carriage wheel.  She suffered a broken rib, bruised rib cage, injured thigh and shin.  Other injuries included a knee injury, broken bones, “and at least one...concussion.”  NY Times, Metropolitan Desk, Jan. 2, 1983
