Richard Hardsog, 18 of North Brookfield
Falls Into Corn Cutting Machine

Ware, Sept. 17A North Brookfield youth was reported in critical condition in Mary Lane Hospital tonight, after an accident in which both his legs were badly mutilated, and despite close co-operation between state and local police in rushing blodd plasma from Cooley Dickinson Hospital Blood Bank to the hospital here...

There's more, but it's mostly about the doctors, police, etc., not about Richard.
