Desire to dislodge a pigeon from its perch just under the roof of his father's barn cost the life of 9-year-old David Tufford, son of Mr. and Mrs. William Tufford, Clinton Township, on Saturday afternoon. Together with his 6-year-old brother Evan and another young boy, the child had climbed a ladder to the top of a hay mow in the barn and then walked out on a beam some thirty feet above the floor. With a pitchfork in his hand he was attempting to dislodge the pigeon when in some manner he overbalanced and fell to the floor, suffering fatal head injury. The father, called to the barn by the 6-year-old child, was carrying the injured boy to the house when he passed away.
