Child Rabies Victim
Dies at Corte Madera
Frankie Rutherford, 2-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. L. T. Rutherford, of Oxnard, who had been visiting with his grandmother, Mrs. Harriett Collins, of Corte Madera, died last Saturday at the Children’s Hospital, San Francisco, where he was taken on Wednesday, January 15.
Attending physicians said that the child’s death was due to rabies, an infection received by the bite of a dog, several months ago at Oxnard, and that at the time several other children were bitten by the animal.
