Montana, Glacier National Park—On August 16, 1956, about 6:00 p.m., Mr. Lino Graglia (35) fell while running on a scree slope and suffered a simple fracture of the humerus (upper arm) of the left arm. His wife assisted him off the mountain—Mt. Henkel in the Many Glacier Valley— and after getting him to bed in their cabin, reported the accident to the Area Ranger. Mr. Graglia explained that he had started down the scree slope and before he knew what was happening he was running faster than he could control. He stopped by diving into the rocks.
